Ernest Ange Duez

Ernest Ange Duez (also known as Ernest-Ange Duez and Ernest Duez, 1843 –1896) was a French painter of genre scenes, portraits, landscapes and religious subjects.

Although he was an admirer of Édouard Manet and owned paintings by Manet, Claude Monet, Edgar Degas and Berthe Morisot, his palette was more subdued than that of most of the Impressionists, and his technique more controlled. His style, between that of the conservative Paris Salon and Impressionism, has been called juste milieu, and he has been compared to Alfred Stevens, Giuseppe De Nittis, and James Tissot.

Landscapes and seaside scenes were often inspired by the Normandy countryside around Villerville and Le Havre.[6] In 1879 at the Salon he exhibited the large triptych Saint Cuthbert, depicting the stages of the life of Cuthbert set in landscapes based on the countryside around Villerville. Considered his greatest work, it is now in the Musée d'Orsay.
