Marcel Dyf was born October 1899 in Paris. Growing up in Normandy in the towns of AUlt, Deauville and Trouville he started his career as an engineer, turning to the life of a painter in 1922, when he moved to Arles to study and subsequently open his own studio.
By the time of the German invasion in 1940, Dyf joined the French Resistance in Corrèze and the Dordogne. After the war he spent his summers in Cannes, where he began to attract the interest of American art collectors. His work was exhibited across France at the Petrides Gallery and the Salon des Artistes Français in Paris, as well as galleries in Nice, Cannes and Strasbourg. Today he is regarded highly for his impressionistic landscapes, still lives and portraits and is considered one of the last true impressionist artists. Marcel Dyf died in September of 1985.
