Description & Technical information

In this romantic painting, French Impressionist artist Marcel Dyf delicately paints his wife Claudine sitting at a table outside. Using slight impasto, Dyf has cleverly conveyed the silkiness of the flowers and the texture of the furnishings adding a romantic, rosy lens to the scene.


Dyf had met Claudine in the 1950s when she was just 19. There was a big age gap of 36 years but after a many years posing for him, they married when Dyf was 66. This painting is a testament for the passion Dyf felt for his wife.
