Raoul Dufy

Le pesage à Deauville
Circa 1930

Pencil drawing on wove paper with watermark "ARCHES" 49.9 x 65.7 cm Signed 'Raoul Dufy' lower right. - Red numeration stamp "807" of the estate inventory verso lower right. - The edges of the laid paper slightly greyed; brownish stains lower left from the estate stamp verso; otherwise in fine condition.

The drawing was created in Deauville in the context of the depictions of horse races; the architectural motif framed by trees appears repeatedly in Dufy's watercolours ("Le pesage ombragé à Deauville" or "Le pesage à Deauville", cf. F. Guillon-Laffaille, Raoul Dufy, Cat. rais. des aquarelles, gouaches et pastels, Vol. I, 900-905).
