dufy j. >> dufy r.

the swatch of fabric above is a design by raoul dufy the more famous older brother of the lesser known artist jean dufy. raoul is not really that well known as a fabric designer but he produced some fantastic textile designs as well as the paintings we all know.
must have been a very competitive, and productive artistic family.
I just love the idea that two members of the same family can be so successful in a competitive world. raoul work (and the way he used colour in textiles) has been special in my life and that is simple the reason I have posted this today. nothing wrong with a bit of indulgence.
