French orientalist who visited Greece and Turkey several times, particularly in the period of 1819 and 1825) mainly around Athens and the island of Corfu, and the surrounding of Constantinople. In his journeys, he passed through Aegean Macedonia where he painted mainly people in traditional dresses. Lous Dupre was impressed by the local folk dresses and exotic oriental everyday scenes. He was also romantically inclined toward ancient Greek history and legacy.

There is at least one record of a painting that he made during his stay in Macedonia: “Macedonian Smoker (Macedonien Fumant”), sold by the auction house De Quay, Paris, France on 12 March 1993 (lot number 167, sold for 31 000 French francs).

About Me

This lexicon is a result of my 15 years long period of researching & documenting the personalities and the artworks of the foreign painters, sculptors, illustrators, and photographers having visited different spots of the geographic territory of Macedonia, there having created works of art there over a 100-years long period i.e. between 1850-1950. Their presence and artwork in the Macedonian milieus represent a notable cultural heritage to the international linkage of the ethnic Macedonians as well as to all the ethnicities living in the picturesque territory of Macedonia and the cultures of modern-day countries spread over parts of the geographic territory of Macedonia. Witnessing the artistic contributions of the foreign artist, we are proud of their Macedonia-themed creative works and experiences. I believe that their artworks, having been inspired and created over the vast region of Macedonia, unite us all in these challenging times, and under the facts and the values of the artistic beauty.
