Sheet from La Fée Électricité (Spirit of Electricity)
Maker and role
Artist: Raoul Dufy, French, 1877-1953
To capitalize on the success of his mammoth mural, Dufy created this suite of lithographs which itself was a monumental undertaking culminating in a masterpiece of color lithography measuring over 20 feet long. La Fée Électricité, or Spirit of Electricity, dominates the upper left portion of the composition, bringing illumination to the world while a parade of the thinkers and inventors, inlcuding everyone from Archimedes to Thomas Edison, populate scenes representing technological achievements through the ages.
