    Marcel Dyf's painting of sunflowers in a vase exudes warmth and vibrancy. The rich, golden hues radiate energy and life. Dyf's deft brushwork infuses the scene with a sense of joy and natural beauty.


    As a youth he spent his holidays in Paris and Normandy, here he observed the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist movements which proved a strong influence on his later painting career. Dyf originally studied engineering and in 1918, at the completion of his studies, travelled to Morocco to work on the construction of a harbour. It was here, captivated by the light and landscape that his thoughts turned towards painting.
