An oil-on-canvas painting, “Le village et le Baou de Saint-Jeannet” is a work by French artist-painter Raoul Dufy. The latter was first of all interested in Impressionism before discovering Fauvism. Recognized for his talents as a draftsman and colorist, Raoul Dufy used color in his own distinctive way. Each painting reveals his penchant for color, simplicity and refinement. He held a number of individual exhibitions in cities such as Paris, New York and Copenhagen, to name but a few.
