MuMa - Musée d'Art Moderne André Malraux
From May 18 to November 3

Raoul Dufy was born in Le Havre in 1877. Throughout his life, he remained moored to Le Havre. It was his ideal city, a landscape for the mind that supplied his favourite subjects. The exhibition taking place at MuMa features nearly 90 artworks that have never been displayed together before, inviting visitors to reconsider the works of this major 20th century artist from a fresh perspective. The juxtaposition of paintings and watercolours from different periods reveals a fascinating shift in Dufy's relationship with the subject. At first faithfully rendered, the Bay of Le Havre and Sainte-Adresse is gradually recomposed and synthesized, then finally reinvented. At the end of his life, far from Le Havre and scarred by the war, Dufy endlessly returned to his favourite subject. To him, Le Havre had finally become an inner landscape.
