Double Canon, for string quartet (“Raoul Dufy in Memoriam”) by Igor Stravinsky

“Strawinsky never once met the painter during his lifetime: whether his bright style which overflowed with light spoke to Strawinsky in particular can only be conjectured. Stravinsky dedicated “the Double Canon in memoriam Dufy” later on for no obvious reason that can be found in the literature.”
