Evian: "Raoul Dufy,
the happiness of living" at the Palais Lumière.
The exhibition celebrates the ease, profusion and brilliance of the work of an artist in love with nature and freedom. Without refusing the achievements of classical culture, Dufy freed himself from the hierarchies that academism had endeavored to establish between the arts considered as major and those decreed as minor arts. He affirms a “modern conception of Art, Beauty and Joy” that escapes the dogmatic constraints of the history of the 20th century art by sharing the renewed pleasure of painting and its rich applications in the field of fashion and decorative arts. More than 200 works document Raoul Dufy’s work as a decorator.
Until June 5th. www.ville-evian.fr
