"[Raoul Dufy] worked in a sub-Impressionist manner until 1905, when the impact of the Fauve movement impelled him to adopt a simplified form and bright colors. He designed textiles, ceramics, stage sets, and costumes as well as joyful paintings. The gay, light-hearted, decorative style, eminently suited his range of subjects: esplanades, race courses, regattas, Paris scenes, etc. He employed a rapid, modish calligraphic draughtsmanship."
