This vintage lithographic poster was designed after French artist Raoul Dufy. It was created for an exhibition of his works at the Galerie Louis Carré, Paris, in 1953 the year of his death. The subject is a concert in a French municipal Kiosque as they were very common throughout the first part of the XXth Century. Like much of Dufy's work, this fauvist inspired image captures the action and the motion of the scene in rapid strokes and vibrant colors .
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.
