Jean-Pierre Dubord was born in Rouen in 1949, and after spending years in the French Countryside, he returned to his native city to portray the surroundings of his youth. While Rouen is a favorite subject for his paintings, he often depicts Paris, the Normandy countryside, the beaches of Deauville and Houlgate, the Cliffs of Caux and Etretat and scenes along the Seine. He is known for his ability to capture the subtleties of light and color unique to each season.
In 1970, he had his first exhibition of approximately thirty paintings in Rouen, a show which was highly praised by art critics. In addition to an annual show in Rouen, he has also exhibited in Bourdeaux, Le Havre, La Rochelle, Osaka, Quebec and in the major, famous salons of Paris.
