Raoul Dufy was a French artist known for his whimsical depictions of luxury on the French Riviera. Inspired by the work of Henri Matisse, Dufy moved from Impressionism into the Fauvist movement, and his work is characterized by calligraphic black lines over exuberant use of bright colors.
Like much of Matisse's work, Dufy's art was often criticized as being too "decorative" without much underlying substance. However, this characteristic of his work led him into successful endeavors in decorative arts (textiles, ceramics, and tapestries), and founded his popularity among the public.
