French, 1811 - 1889
As a graphic
artist Jules Dupré realized no more then ten or so lithographs reproducing his
own paintings. With perhaps two or three exceptions these were all for
publications in L'artistye between 183 and 1836.
Born in Nantes on April 5th 1811. Dupre went to Paris in 1829 where he further developed as an artist through his friendship with Cabat. He also met the artists Decamps, Jeanron and Huet at this time. 1831 He travelled to Great Britain, where he sketched and studied paintings by the English Landscapists. Upon his return, he travelled extensively through the French provinces, which were a great inspiration for him. In 1832 he apprenticed his father, a porcelain decorator and director of several porcelain factories, and began to experiment with drawing and painting nature scenes.
