Dupuis Maurice

Maurice Dupuis is a Belgian artist who was born in Ghent in 1882 and died there in 1959. He was a painter, draftsman, watercolorist and etcher. Was taken at the age of twelve by the sculptor Louis Mast to the Academy in Ghent to draw from plaster models together with Jean Delvin's students. Due to the early death of his father in 1894, his mother forced him to work in the construction workshop of the Phoenix firm, where he learned the technique of technical drawing. On Sundays he did go painting and drawing in nature. He painted figures, (children's) portraits, street scenes, seascapes, interiors and still lifes. Was influenced by H. Evenpoel and his works reflect an intimate atmosphere. Evolved slowly from realism to impressionism. Realized as an etcher (dry needle technique) carnival scenes, figures, nudes and street scenes. Critics sometimes compare his work with that of Chardin, Corot or Evenpoel. From the press: 'For him everything is a pretext for painting: a girl getting out of her bath, a boy drawing at a kitchen table, a bowl of shrimps with a hunk of bread and a drinking glass, two herrings on a plate, vegetables near an earthen pot. But then comes the magician, who sublimates the simple things through the effect of a wonderful recreation." (G. Van Severen) He was a teacher from 1937 to 1947 at the Hogere Nijverheidsschool in Ghent and from 1936 to 1947 he was also curator at the Museum in Ghent. Retrospective in 1957 and tribute exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts in Ghent in 1982. Work in the Museums in Ghent, Brussels and Ixelles. Mentioned in BAS I and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. Source: Piron
