About

A wonderful oil on canvas by French Orientalist painter Paul Elie Dubois depicting a gondola sailing along the canal in Venice, the buildings bordering the canals reflecting in the water. Signed lower left and signed & titled verso. Dimensions: Framed: 37"x32" Unframed: 26"x21" Provenance: Private French collection Exhibition number on canvas lower right corner - likely from the Societe Des Artistes Francais 1922 Born 29 October 1886, in Colombier-Chatelot; died 14 February 1949, in Montbéliard. Paul Dubois trained at the Académie Julian and the École Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He first exhibited in 1906 at the Salon des Artistes Français. In 1920, he showed a composition inspired by World War I and received the Salon's silver medal, enabling him to stay at the villa Abd-El-Tif in Algiers for two years; this determined his career in Orientalism. In 1928 he was the official painter of the Hoggar Mountains mission and in 1931 decorated the Algerian pavilion at the Exposition Coloniale. Dubois illustrated The Puritans of the Southern Algerian Desert ( Les Puritains du Désert Sud-Algérien) (1944) by André Chevrillon.

Les Artistes Comtois Voyageurs), Musée d'Art et d'Histoire, Montbéliard (2002); Painters from the Other Shore. Algiers 1830-1930 ( Les Peintres de l'autre Rive.
