More information

In 1905 Dufy was greatly influenced by an exhibition of the so-called Fauves. Henri Matisse became his hero, but just a few years later Dufy, like many of his younger colleagues, fell under the spell of Pablo Picasso’s Cubism. This painting shows how he attempted to unite these two influences. The palette of mainly green and brown tones is Cubist, while the flowing lines and the detail of the horse trotting in front of the carriage are borrowed from Fauvism.
