Le Bal

Raoul Dufy (French, 1877-1953) – Le Bal, 1920 (Oil on canvas) – Brilliant and direct colors are combined with simplified figures and schematic compositions, which vividly evoke the lively of dancers at the ball. His short, parallel brushstrokes lend a dynamic quality to the flat construction of geometrical forms, revealing his investigation of form and space in a brightly saturated variation of the cubist style.
