currently loving: raoul dufy

Enamored by curly cues of classical building tops, I have a penchant for illustrations of architecture and interior design that capture that charm of old school design. I'm currently loving French artist of the early 1900 somethings or something or another, Raoul Dufy...

"My eyes were made to erase all that is ugly."

dufy got graphic, too; reminds me of prints i might see on a runway dress today.

"When I feel a little confused,
the only thing to do is to turn back to the study of nature before
launching once again into the subjects closest to heart."

"I don't follow any system. All the laws you can lay down are only so many props to be cast aside when the hour of creation arrives."
Raoul Dufy
