Ernest Ange DUEZ (French, 1843-1896) ✿

Ernest Ange Duez (1843-1896) was a French painter of genre scenes, portraits, and landscapes. His style, between that of the conservative Paris Salon and Impressionism, has been called juste milieu, and he has been compared to Alfred Stevens, Giuseppe De Nittis, and James Tissot.
Duez was born in Paris, and studied painting under Isidore Pils. He first exhibited at the Salon in 1868 with Mater Dolorosa, and achieved success there in 1874 with a third-class medal for his paintings Splendeur and Misère. He won other medals there subsequently.
Duez carried out a number of commissions for the adornment of public buildings in Paris. These included Novembre and Décembre in the Palais Garnier's Galerie du glacier, Virgile s’inspirant dans les bois (1888) for the Sorbonne, La Botanique and La Physique (1892) for the Hôtel de Ville's Salon des Sciences, and L’heure de la tétée à la maternité (1895) for the Assistance publique - Hôpitaux de Paris.
