Fine Art/Raoul Dufy


Raoul Dufy
Raoul Dufy  
I have come into ownership of a watercolor painting signed "Raoul Dufy". I could not find any references online except for the similarities of a horse racing theme. The painting is 16 x 20 in. appox. on 1/8" stock. The back is blank except for the numbers: 12985 and corrosion stains from staples around the edges. It does not appear to be a print but I'm no expert. Any help is appreciated before I bring it to NYC

Hello Robert,

Unfortunately, I do not have the authority to authenticate a potentially unique Dufy painting.  The only person who can is Fanny Guillon-Laffaille.  I recommend that you contact her directly. Please find her information below:

Fanny Guillon-Laffaille
4, Avenue de Messine
75008 Paris France
T: +33 (0)1 45 63 52 00
F: +33 (0)1 45 61 92 91

I hope that this information can be of some assistance.

Warm Regards,

Andrew Evans
