Raoul Dufy, il pittore della gioia


Painting, subjects and bright colors will be the protagonists of the first major exhibition in Italy dedicated to the great artist Raoul Dufy, from 14 October.

Known for his colourful, decorative style, the multifaceted Raoul Dufy (1877-1953) was a French Fauvist painter as well as a draftsman, printmaker, illustrator and designer.  The exhibition, curated by Sophie Krebs and organised in collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, features about 150 works, including paintings, drawings, ceramics and fabrics.

Organisers say this is the second exhibition on Dufy in Rome, after the 1984 show at the French Academy in Villa Medici.

Open Tues-Sun 10.00-20.00 (last admission at 19.00). For full details see website.
