Jean-Pierre Dubord was born in Rouen, Normandy, in 1949. He began to paint in 1967 and had his first exhibition in his native city in 1970. Dubord’s subjects are street scenes of Paris as well as the neighboring villages and beaches of Normandy. His landscapes evoke the moods of the four seasons in a particularly poetic manner. Showing in numerous exhibitions across France, he eventually exhibited in the prestigious Paris Salons: the Salon des Artistes Francais, and the Salon des Independents.
