Marcel Dyf, whose real name was Marcel Dreyfus, was born in Paris on October 7, 1899. He showed a talent for art at an early age, by the age of 23 he became a professional artist. A self-taught artist, Dyf’s influence and inspiration came from the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists; among his favourite was Renoir.
Dyf set up a studio in Arles in 1922 and began his career as a landscape artist. His work began to attract attention from collectors and dealers and it was not long before he began exhibiting at the Salon des Artists Français, Salon d'Autumn and Salon des Tulleries.
By 1935 Dyf had returned to Paris and during World War II he joined the Resistance. By 1950 he had set up a studio in Cannes and a few years later met a young girl by the name of Claudine. Claudine was 19 at the time, some 36 years younger than Marcel, and in 1965 after posing for him for many years the two married.
By this time Dyf had become known for his impressionistic landscapes, still lives and portraits and his paintings had been exhibited throughout the world. Today he is considered one of the last of the true Impressionist artists.
Dyf died on 16 September 16 1985.
