The birthday boy for June 3 is Raoul Dufy.
I find it interesting when an artist’s work represents the spirit of their sun sign. Just a moment ago I discovered that Raoul Dufy was a Gemini. Although a Capricorn, Henri Matisse, is usually associated with Fauvism, his contributions to modern art styles are more comprehensive and more varied. Dufy, on the other hand, worked with a quick hand in the bright colors that I associate with Gemini. Most of his work can be described as Fauvism.
What has always intrigued me about Dufy is how much the backgrounds of some classic Warner Bros. cartoons drew upon his influence. You just have to watch old Pepé Le Pew cartoons to see what I mean. Does that mean that Pepé Le Pew is a Gemini, too? Actually, he’s a Capricorn, too. I share his birthday!
