Jean Dufy Biography

Jean Dufy was born in Le Havre in 1888, the seventh of eleven children. His was an artistic family, particularly devoted to music. Jean showed considerable talent at an early age. Encouraged in his artistic endeavours by his older brother, Raoul, and his friend, Emile Othon Friesz, Jean produced plays for the family.
Comparisons with the work of his brother Raoul are inevitable and much like him, Jean worked a great deal in watercolor, painting views of Paris and other cities, circus and horse-racing scenes, as well as depicting orchestras at work. It is in this latter subject matter that his work differs from that of his brother.
Jean, himself an accomplished musician and guitar player with a love of jazz, adopted a more fluid style. He takes an overall, global view in his work and is less influenced by the individual and particular in a subject. Deep blues predominate his work, highlighted by reds and greens, and accented with yellows.
An internationally renowned painter with frequent expositions in Paris, the United States, and with works displayed in the collections of the most prestigious European and American museums including the Musée national d'Art moderne, Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Albertina Museum in Vienna, the Art Institute of Chicago and the MoMA in New York, Jean Dufy passed away on the 12th of May, 1964, in La Boissière, a hamlet near the village of Boussay, two months after the death of his wife, Ismérie.
