1811, Apr 51889, Oct 6
a French painter, one of the chief members of the Barbizon school of landscape painters. If Corot stands for the lyric and Jean-Jacques Rousseau for the epic aspect of the poetry of nature, Dupré is the exponent of his tragic and dramatic aspects. Dupré's colour is sonorous and resonant. He showed preference for using dramatic sunset effects and stormy skies and seas as the subjects of his paintings. Late in life he changed his style and gained appreciably in largeness of handling and arrived at greater simplicity in his colour harmonies.
