From the suite Vacances Forcées.

Published in 1956 by Roland Dorgelès and dedicated to the memory of his friend Raoul Dufy who had died in 1953.

Dorgelès chose 24 Dufy watercolours to accompany the text. They were reinterpreted as wood engravings by the master engraver Jacques Beltrand. During 2 years of intensive work, Beltrand engraved over 400 blocks, a separate block being required for every colour on each image. The finished work needed 140,000 passes through the press.
Raoul Dufy portraitBorn in Le Havre, Dufy was from a large family and had to start work at the age of 14. He studied art at night school, eventually receiving a grant enabling him to attend the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Impressionistic at first, he became a convert to Fauvism under the influence of Matisse. He also collaborated with Braque, but soon developed the highly personal manner for which he became famous.

Dufy’s work is characterized by brightly coloured drawings suiting the glittering scenes of luxury and pleasure he favoured; the accessibility of his work lent itself to commercial advertising and widely copied as a result. Dufy died at Forcalquier in 1953 and was buried near Matisse in Cimiez, a suburb of the city of Nice.
