The exhibition Raoul Dufy: A Spectacle of Society at Connaught Brown (until 25th November 2016, www.connaughtbrown.co.uk) brings to our attention his skill in depicting society of the interwar period and how he concentrates on people as a group rather than individually thus creating a sense of joie-de-vivre that encapsulates the era perfectly.
