Raoul Dufy occupies a critical place in the formative period of European twentieth century modern art, but he is not easily or readily categorized, as by the 1920s, he had chosen an independent route. Dufy’s earliest association was with the short-lived Fauves (wild beasts), who showed at the Salon d’Automne from 1905 to 1908. The key Fauve artists are a who’s who of early twentieth-century modern, including Henri Matisse, Georges Braque, André Derain, Albert Marquet, Kees van Dongen, Maurice de Vlaminck and Othon Friesz, who was a life-time friend. Their work was characterized by flat planes and bold, saturated colour that did not adhere to “naturalism,” yet the preferred subject matter was the landscape and the urban environment. Matisse’s now-celebrated painting Luxe, calme, et volupté was shown in the 1905 Salon. It had a profound effect on Dufy, who stated, “I instantly understood the new pictorial mechanics.”
