In 1954, Dyf met model and soon-to-be “artist muse” Claudine Godat. At 19, Claudine was some 36 years younger than Dyf, and striking in all aspects. The artist believed her to be his perfect model.
Godat proved to be an artistic catalyst in Dyf’s life, causing the journey in the artist’s oeuvre to maturation. In 1956, the couple married, buying a 16th century hunting lodge located at Bois d’Arcy near Versailles.
