Fine Art/Raoul Dufy Painting

Question
\'no idea
'no idea  
I have a Raoul Dufy painting that was given to me by my grandmother whom on the other hand was given to her by her deceased employer. It looks similar to some of his original paintings and I just wanted to know if it was done by him because according to my grandmother, her employer had bought it from an auction awhile back. It has his signatures and I've been looking at some of his work and it looks pretty similar to his orginals. I have attached a picture of the painting we have at my house. Please take a look at it.
