Raoul Dufy Is an exhibition of less well known Works by the french painter that have a more intímate feel to them.
The exhibition is from 17 February to 17 May 2015 at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza and includes a group of lesser-known paintings by Dufy, who isnt very well known in Spain. The French artist painted scenes, mostly in the seaside, marked by the ´Joie de Viivre´or joy and pleasure of everyday life. Later in his career, he became more interested in private, personal themes. In the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, you’ll also find the woodcut illustrations Dufy made for Guillaume Apollinaire’s book of poems Bestiary, or The Parade of Orpheus.
