While he showed a talent for art at an early age, he began his adult life as an engineer, but 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 favorite was Pierre A. Renoir. Measures: 31.25″ W x 35.5″ H.
