JEAN DUHETREFrench Fl.1920 - 1930

Jean Duhetre, painter of portraits and scenes from contemporary life, was born at Clauzel in the Gironde region of France in the last years of the 19th century. He made his exhibiting debut in Paris at the Salon des Independants of 1920 with a portrait, and though there seems to be nothing further recorded of his life, today he is known on the art market primarily for his paintings of Parisian life. These are painted in the Post-Impressionist manner, with bold brushstrokes, and nearly always have a fine sense of atmosphere.
