Jean Dufy & Gen Paul: 20th Century Masters
to Thu 3 Dec 2020
Tue-Sat 10am-6pm

Findlay Galleries presents an exhibition of recent acquisitions and gallery collection of works by Jean Dufy and Gen Paul, two masters of the school of Paris. Wally Findlay first introduced Dufy’s work to the American market in the early 1950s, since then, Findlay Galleris has continued to exhibit his paintings internationally. Jean Dufy’s work has garnered acclaim and recognition, and his works are found in many corporate and private collections. Jean Dufy was one of the first peers to recognize Gen Paul’s talents and immediately brought his work to Mr. Findlay’s attention. Thus, another long-lasting relationship ensued from the late 1950s until today.

Jean Dufy
Jean Dufy was born in Le Havre, France, on March 12, 1888, into an enormously artistic family of nine children, where each child was eventually devoted to an instrument of their choice. Besides his guitar skills, Jean Dufy demonstrated tremendous talent in the visual arts, much like his older brother Raoul. He was encouraged by Raoul and their friend Othon Friesz to pursue his talents at the École des Beaux-Arts in Le Havre. Later on, Raoul Dufy, Braque, and Friesz would wield their future Fauve expressions.
Jean was continually evolving in his creative process. Dominated by a color scale of blue, Paris provided an endless source of inspiration: from the Gates of the city to the Boulevards, the horse-drawn carriages, the Eiffel Tower, the Seine, and the beauty of the sky. All works were painted with stylistic curls and dashes of fashionable colors, depicting swirling lifestyles of the elite and the imagined.
Jean also paid homage to the Fratellini brothers in his paintings of circuses and clowns that teem with the music and language of color and plays of light. He had a penchant for the liberal use of white, highlighting his clowns, horses, and musicians, and capturing several of his siblings who did indeed become Circus performers.
Wally Findlay was a proud copain of Jean Dufy, and Findlay Galleries has had a formidable and rewarding bond with the Dufy family since the early 1950s. Premier Exhibitions in Chicago, Palm Beach, and New York were launched in the 1960s, promoting the artistic charm and value of one of France’s leading contemporaries. Findlay Galleries continues its dedication to Jean Dufy with worldwide exhibitions of his celebrated work.

Gen Paul
In Raymond Nacenta’s book School of Paris, Eugène Paul, known as Gen Paul, is described as the “genuine son of Montmartre.” On July 2, 1895, Gen Paul was born on rue Lepic – the same street in Montmartre where Van Gogh had stayed with his brother, Théo. He spent his early life in Montmartre, Paris, where the Impressionist revolution was born and where Fauvism and more contemporary schools, such as Cubism, were formulated.
The Moulin de la Galette, Place Pigalle, and the Place du Tertre were everyday sights for Gen Paul. The Bateau-Lavoir was the well-established meeting place of independent painters and writers of the early 1900s. Picasso, Braque, Metzinger, Gris, along with Van Dongen, Matisse, Derain, and Dufy were among the distinguished company. Unlike many painters who pursued one stylistic formula for a given period that later developed into another, Gen Paul seems to have worked in both directions concurrently – the Cubist-oriented phase and one of simplified, fragmented realism, reminiscent of both Raoul and Jean Dufy at times.
His work caught the eye of Wally Findlay in the late 1950s. Findlay was collecting exotic Fauve works during this period and organizing exhibitions of Jean Dufy’s work for his Chicago Gallery. In fact, it was Jean Dufy, a friend of Findlay, who recommended that he visit with Gen Paul. By 1972 Findlay organized a major solo exhibition of Gen Paul’s work at the New York Gallery, followed a year later with another exhibition at our gallery in Paris. Since, Findlay Galleries has exhibited Gen Paul’s work regularly at all of its gallery locations Palm Beach and New York locations.
