Jean Dupas (1882-1964)

This is one of my favorite Art Deco works. It was painted by Jean Théodore Dupas (born in 1882 -1964) a French painter, designer, poster artist, and decorator. He won the prix de Rome in 1910. In 1925, he showed this piece, at the Grand Exposition des Art Décoratifs in Paris. It is called "Les Perruches", one of his most famous oils on canvas. It's nice to see the preliminary sketch and a photo of the painting in it's location above a fireplace. Jean Dupas
