Further information
Raoul Dufy's Seated Woman - Rosalie depicts a young woman with pale pink skin and bright red lips, her body folded inward as she sits upon a loosely-rendered Turkish rug. Blue paint dominates the background, recalling the Fauvist style of artist Henri Matisse. Most well-known for horse races and regattas, Dufy also painted numerous studies of nude women. Dufy's models were curvaceous women with generous hips, offering wonderful opportunities for the study of flesh.
