Born in 1877, Dufy, a French fauvist  painter, was  also a draftsman, a printmaker,  a  book illustrator,  a scenic designer, a designer of furniture, and a planner of public spaces.
Dufy developed a colorful, decorative style that became fashionable for designs of ceramics and textiles, as well as decorative schemes for public buildings.  He is noted for scenes of open-air social events.

Raoul Dufy made his mark on the 20th Century as he helped to create a modern visual  sensibility and perception, a way of seeing things after the First World War, which was  different  from the way they were ever seen before.
