The museum, with the collaboration of the Comunidad de Madrid, offered with this exhibition a reassessment of Raoul Dufy´s work that focuses not only on his more hedonistic side as the painter of the pleasures of modern life, but also and primarily on his more introspective, reflexive and personal facet.

In this video, Juan Ángel López-Manzanares, the exhibition’s curator and a curator at the museum, explains the display and analyses relatively unexplored issues within Dufy’s output such as the increasing distance of the viewpoints in his compositions, his synthesis of the everyday and the pastoral, the emotional reserve of his landscapes and the importance, particularly in his late works, of depictions of his domestic realm.
