Informations: Lithograph created as tribute to Raoul Dufy and printed in 1965 in the Mourlot workshops.

Raoul Dufy : Brother of artist Jean Dufy, Raoul was born in 1877 in Le Havre where he spent his childhood. Fine Arts school student, he works in Paris since 1900, showing art fisrt an interest in impressionist and postimpressionist artists. Dufy works with Albert Marquet at Fécamp, Trouville and Le Havre. 1905 marks for him an evolution toward a new painting. The discovery of Matisse's "Luxe, calme et volupté" (1904) is at that time a revelation of his rupture from impressionism ("Jeanne in the flowers", 1907). Around 1909, his work becomes lighter, adding grace and humor ("The bois de Boulogne", 1909). The artist also reveales himself in the illustration of litterary works as "Bestiaire d'Orphée" by Apollinaire in 1910. He also shows interest in decorative art and creates a textile decoration compagny with Paul Poiret in 1911. After the second World War, his painting reachs his final style, characterized by a sharp drawing, pure colors with arbitrary contour, generally representing a crowd on tint areas of bright colors ("Race in Epson", 1935). After the war the artist pratice more and more watercolor and the end of his life leads his work toward a greatest starkness ("The red violin", 1948). In 1952, Dufy won The International Grand Prize of Painting at the XXVIth Venice Biennale, he died the following year.
Georges Braque : (1882-1963) is one of the founding fathers of Cubism. The artist grew up in Le Havre before coming to Paris in 1900. He turned to Fauvism in 1905 and exhibited the next year at The "Salon des Indépendants". Braque met Picasso at the "Bateau-Lavoir" in 1907 by means of Apollinaire. Both artists share an admiration for Cézanne. Giving up landscape for still life, Braque collaborated with Picasso in the formulation of "analytical" then "hermetic" Cubism doctrines. From 1912, the invention of the "papiers collés" allowed him to reintroduce color which became independent from shape ("Still life with violin", 1912). As a pioneer, he was the first to introduce in his works the printing letter, to use the combs to paint, fake wood, and to add sand, sawdust and nail to the painting surface. His mobilization in 1914, marked his separation from Picasso. Braque then essentially dedicated himself to still life. From 1928, the artist lightened his palette and the purchase of his Varengeville-sur-mer property near Dieppe in 1930, announced the reappearance of the landscape in his painting. On the other hand, World War II, inspired his darkest paintings. He died in Paris in 1963.
