Many think of seaside paintings, streets with flags and scenes of anonymous figures walking down the streets when there is a mention of Raoul Dufy. His seascapes are often an emerald green with patches of white, black and red depicting sailboats and people.

Many of his works as embodying a sense of gentle gaiety and ephemerality. Dufy did several paintings of avenues in Le Havre where he was born, strewn with flags commemorating Bastille Day. Unlike Van Dongen, Derain and Vlaminck, Dufy encountered much animosity upon meeting with the Fauves.
