Raoul Dufy (French: [ʁa.ul]; 3 June 1877 – 23 March 1953) was a French Fauvist painter. He developed a colorful, decorative style that became fashionable for ceramics and textile designs, as well as decorative schemes for public buildings. He is noted for scenes of open-air social events. He was also a draftsman, printmaker, book illustrator, scenic designer, furniture designer and a planner of public spaces.

Dufy trained at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and became associated with the artists that became the Fauves. After coming under the influence of Cézanne and early Cubism, Dufy's paintings became infused with bright colors, which he then carried over to book illustrations and his designs for the stage. In 1952 he won the International Painting Prize at the Venice Biennale. Comment on works: abstract
