This lithographic poster was designed after late artist, Raoul Dufy for an exhibition of his works at the Galerie Beyeler-Baumleingasse, by the Atelier Mourlot in 1957. The image is based on a sketch by Dufy from 1907. Depicted is a street view of people celebrating Bastille Day, waving the French flag. Plane color areas of sketchy character enliven the composition.
During his life, Raoul Dufy traveled often within France, painting views of the Mediterranean city of Nice, as well as scenes of horse races and regattas. Throughout the 1920s, Dufy worked in a variety of materials, producing ceramics, tapestry hangings, and large-scale architectural decorations. His commission for the 26th Venice Biennale won him the International Grand Prix for painting in 1952, a year before his death on March 23, 1953 in Forcalquier, France.
