Fine art painting: French School of the 19th-century oil on canvas signed Dorrée Emile (1883-1959). Large-scale painting.
A still life with a very beautiful depth and a powerful light, distributed in a balanced and uniform way. Emile alternates between large brushstrokes and more calculated movements, giving the composition and its background an elaborate touch, full of perspective and eye-catching.
Émile Dorrée was a French painter born in Paris in 1883. He trained at the Académie Julian and in the painting workshops of various Parisian artists.
He was a member of the Salon des Artistes Français, where he exhibited in 1911. He won a bronze medal for French Artists as well as the Raigecourt-Goyon Prize in 1921 and a silver medal in 1922.

He died in 1959 near Cherbourg.
