Raoul Dufy
Portrait of Marius André

Circa 1910 - 1925

About

Original drawing (circa 1910 - 1925) of Marius André, pencil on paper, by Raoul Dufy (1877 - 1953). With impeccable provenance and authentication* by the leading expert on Dufy's work, this drawing has a very interesting history. Its owner, from Sainte-Cècile-les-Vignes, in Provence, was cleaning an old frame which held the portrait of Jean Paul Casimir-Perrier (1847 - 1907), French politician who served as President of the French Third Republic. As he disassembled the old frame, he found hidden behind the top image, this portrait of Marius André (1868 - 1927), French writer, poet, journalist and translator of French and Occitan languages, by world renown artist, Raoul Dufy. Dufy was a friend of André and stopped over in Sainte-Cècile on his way further south. The drawing is in good vintage condition with some minor blemishing and slight creasing of paper, commensurate with its age. For serious collectors, this is an incredible opportunity to own an original piece by an artist celebrated around the globe and whose works appear in some of the finest museums in the world. Signed: "À Marius André, son ami, Raoul Dufy" ("To Marius André, his friend, Raoul Dufy"). About the Artist: Raoul Dufy (1877 - 1953) was a French artist and designer. He created airy washes of light and shade, into which he would draw bold calligraphic brushstrokes. The artist's breezy yet experimental use of colour was influenced both by Claude Monet and his Fauvist peer, Henri Matisse. Born in Le Havre, France, he enrolled in night classes at the École des Beaux-Arts and at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts on a scholarship. Dufy first encountered Fauvism at the Salon des Indépendants in 1905, after which he adapted the style to his own purposes. During his life, the artist traveled both abroad and within France, painting views of the Mediterranean city of Nice, as well as scenes of horse races and regattas. Today, the artist’s works are held in the collections of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Art Institute of Chicago. The highest price for a Dufy painting at auction sold for over $7M USD. (*Authentication certificate available at cost). Dimensions without frame: H 62 cm (24.4") W 41 cm (16.1")
