Daniel Dupré
1752 – Amsterdam – 1817

Dutch painter and draughtsman

Daniel Dupré first was a pupil of J. van Dregt (1737-1807), then he studied at the academy of arts in Amsterdam under J. Andriessen (1742-1819).

After his studies he travelled through Switzerland and the Rhine valley. In 1786 he visited Rome, supported by the Dutch Scientific Society. In Rome he lived and worked for five years.

Back in Amsterdam he mainly painted Italian landscapes and he regularly participated exhibitions in his hometown.

Dupré gained his reputation not as much for his high-level artistic skills but mainly for the realistic and accurate workout of his views of famous places in Italy.

His drawings are owned by many museums, e.g. the British Museum in London and the Teyler Museum in Amsterdam.
