Discover the story and the journey of Raoul Dufy. Celebrated all over the world for his work, he leaves behind an image of a painter whose motto was : “Life did not always smile at me but I smiled at life”.
Young, he participated in the innovations of modern art of the 20th century : impressionism, fauvism, cubism, to the point of forging his own style. From 1910, he abolished the hierarchies between major arts and minor arts to build a vision of the singular reality which transfigures the images of his childhood.
This documentary offers an original look at an essential page of modern art, renewing an exceptional collection of his work, supported by testimonies of specialists who shed light on the artist’s journey.
