Alfred Dunet

Alfred Dunet

1889 – 1939

Industrial textile designer, he attended classes at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. After some very classic drawing lessons he adopted oil painting. ‘I feel a real need to express colour, and I could attest through experience to the therapeutic aspect of modern painting, which makes light come to life on the palette’

At the beginning of the twenties, Alfred Dunet moved to Paris, to the hill at Montmatre, and composed strongly architectural canvasses with plenty of geometric forms with muted colours. His style then evolved further: City streets transformed by his personal vision tinted with anguish and poetry.
