Dufy is famous for revisiting themes, but as Raymond Cogniat argues convincingly, these “pictures are not different versions of the same subject but another harmony, another combination of rhythms, of which the subject is only the starting point” (Raymond Cogniat, Paintings and Drawings by Raoul Dufy (exhibition catalogue), Tate Britain, London, 1954, n.p.). Dufy’s approach could not be more different to that of Monet, who diligently recorded the atmospheric effects on a single subject, willingly submitting to “ideas dictated by circumstances of light or temperature, things outside himself, whereas Dufy imposes on a picture his individual and personal vision” (Raymond Cogniat, ibid., n.p.). The present work is a case in point: torrential rain on June 18, 1930 flooded the course and caused the program to be abandoned for the rest of the day, with photographs recording the sea of umbrellas and press reports of lightning strikes. The clouds in the present work allude perhaps to inclement weather but it is the pace of the racehorses that drives the momentum of the characteristically bright composition.

If the Impressionists’ fastidious attention to natural light did not interest him, the obsession with society and fashion at Ascot interested him even less. “Friends who accompanied Dufy on his earliest expeditions to the racecourse in the twenties...all speak of the way in which he was more interested in the horses’ and jockeys’ colours than he was in the people, smart or otherwise. Gradually, in Dufy’s racecourse scenes...everything is again given up to the crisp, jaunty interaction between green turf, red brick buildings, white railings, multi-coloured crowds, green trees against blue sky with sprightly puffs of clouds”(Bryan Robertson,“An Introduction to Raoul Dufy,”in Raoul Dufy 1877-1953 (exhibition catalogue), Hayward Gallery, London, 1983, n.p.).
