Large lithograph from the Third Series of School Prints in 1949. This print was created as part of an initiative to get children in British schools interested in art by showing them printmaking. A few artists were asked to participate and 3,000 prints were created - a lot of which were destroyed over the years from displaying and using them in schools. Signed in the plate. A rare print, this has a great story and comes alive with colour. 


Measures 75.8 x 49.5 cm.


Unframed and stored flat.


French artist Raoul Dufy (1877-1953) was a key Fauvist artist. He was a painter as well as a draftsman, printmaker and designer and worked in a lively and colourful manner. His work is typically illustrative and optimistic rather than displaying wider cultural or social issues, and was popular during his life as it is now. His work is held in numerous important collections and museums internationally.
