Marcel Dyf

French 1899-1985 

Marcel Dyf was born Marcel Dreyfus in 1899 in Paris, France. Initially an engineer, at the age of 23 he set up an art studio in Arles and became a professional artist. Dyf was a self-taught artist who was influenced by the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, notably Pierre-Auguste Renoir. He initially established himself as a landscape painter, but he is also known for still lifes and portraits, especially of his wife and model Claudine. Dyf was commissioned to paint murals in the town halls of Saint Martin-de-Crau and Les Saintes Maries-de-la-Mer and in the dining room of the Collège Ampère.

Dyf exhibited at the Salon des Artists Français, Salon d’Autumn and Salon des Tulleries. His work can be found in public collections such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, NY, USA; Smith College Museum of Art in Massachusetts, USA; and Museon Arlaten in Arles, France.
