Artwork Biography

View full artist profile

Daughter of the painter Julien Dupré and niece of George Laugée, Thérèse Dupré was immersed since her earliest childhood in an artistic environment.

 

Pupil of her father, she started to learn painting in his studio. Very inspired by the work of her father, Thérèse Dupré realised realist and naturalist painting of peasant community.

 

She painted the great subjects of this artistic movement, but she added a pleasant style making the rural life a perfection. In this way, the farmers and the washerwomen were healthy and strong women, never tired and who seem to make their labor in joy and happiness. Her characters, most often feminine, were represented in a green and luminous countryside, reminder of the landscapes of Normandy and Picardy.

 

Thérèse Dupré married Edmond Cotard in 1889. They had two sons Henri-Edmond and François who will both become painter and illustrator. From this time, she signed her paintings under the family name of Cotard Dupré.

 

She exhibited at the 1889’s Salon of French Artists  some scenes of countryside that were very well-liked by public. From then on, she received many orders for portraits, landscapes and farmer scenes.

 

In 1907, she gained a third class medal and became on the same year member of the Salon.

 

Despite an important artistic production, Thérèse Cotard Dupré’s art works are rare today, because many of them were lost during WWI. Her children hadn’t any descendants, and the paintings they had from their mother were dispersed.
