This lithographic poster was designed in 1966 after the late artist Raoul Dufy, for an exhibition of works by Chagall, Dufy, Braque, Matisse and other French artists at the French Institute of Scotland in Edinburg. This beautiful image features a lithographic rendition of Dufy's 1952 oil painting, "Homage to Claude Debussy".
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.
