Dazzling Dufy

Invitation to a luminous feast with Raoul Dufy.

Raoul Dufy was a key player in early twentieth century avant garde art, design and literary/theatrical circles in Paris. His imagination and technical virtuosity- across a wide variety of media including painting and lithography, posters, book illustration, theatrical set design, textiles, fashion, ceramics and large murals-cut across all conventional boundaries. He defies categorisation as he constantly innovates and experiments. This lecture explores this charismatic character whose wit and curiosity about the world was infectious.
