Raoul Dufy: neither ground, nor distance, nor sky

Dans ma peinture il n’y a ni sol, ni lointain, ni ciel : il y a des couleurs dont les rapports entre eux créent l’espace, et c’est tout.

(In my paintings there is neither ground, nor distance, nor sky: there are colours, and the relations between them create space, and that’s it.)

  1. A wonderful Dufy choice, thank you!
    We are also big fans of Raoul Dufy, but just recently came across his brother Jean’s work, have you seen it? Was he wrongly ignored because of their similar painting styles?
    More here about their tricky relationship and some pics. http://www.normandythenandnow.com/an-eye-for-beauty-in-le-havre/
