- Dufy was strongly influenced by the musical figures that surrounded him, especially in Paris. The expressiveness of Voiliers, recalls the music that Dufy would have heard in the cafes of Paris; a culture Dufy was very much a part of. The strong vertical brushstrokes in Voiliers conveys the sense of movement associated with jazz and also recalls the fluid motion of waves.

­- The title itself, ‘Voiliers’ refers to the specific type of boats depicted in this painting; the name of which is derived for the French word for sail or veil. The boats were previously mercantile ships but during Dufy’s lifestyle they were used as leisure boats, as seen by the graphic figures in the foreground.
