One of the most influential post-Impressionist artists, Pierre Dumont was born in Paris on March 29, 1884. Against the wishes of his father, Dumont enrolled at the Lycée Corneille; it was there he met Robert Antoine Pinchon and Marcel Duchamp who became lifelong friends.

In 1906, at the age of 22, Dumont held his first one man exhibition at Galerie Legrip, a Rouen dealer who promoted Normandy painters. Dumont's paintings confirmed his fiery temperament as a colorist and his departure from the influence of Impressionism. When the Fauve movement ran out of steam, Dumont took it upon himself to create a parallel salon. He united a "Group of XXX" with the first exhibition held at Galerie Legrip. Two years later this group expanded into the Sociéte de Peintures Modernes. Included were some of the most exciting artists of the time. Even Paris-based painters such as Utrillo, Vlaminck, Luce and Gillamin sent their works to Rouen for these exhibitions.

From 1914 - 1924 Dumont achieved great success with his paintings of street scenes in Monmartre, Notre Dame cathedral and the bridges of Paris. But in 1927 he suffered the first of many "cerebral attacks" which endured intermittently for ten years.

In February 1931, he was invited by Armand Drouant to hold an exhibition at 35 Rue de Seine. This was the last exhibition held while the artist was alive. His eyesight dimmed and his right hand paralyzed, Dumont painted with his left hand during his final years. He died in a Paris hospital in 1936 at the age of 52.

Roland Oudot (French; 1897-1981) is an important member of the group known as "Artists of Poetic Reality." This term, describing painters in France between the two World Wars, includes Oudot and his friends, Legueult and Brianchon. They sought the beauty in the real, as a departure from the stylistic Impressionist and post-Impressionist pioneers that came before them.

Oudot studied at the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris from 1915 - 1918. Then followed an influential period when he worked with Leon Bakst, head painter for the Russion Ballet. Oudot was given assignments for murals, scenic design and costumes. His involvement with the ballet led to the world of interior decorating, where he designed fabric and furniture for the firm of Sue and Mare.

In 1918, he returned to the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs and the atelier of Eugéne Morand. Here he studied paintings by Marquet, Matisse and Duffrenoy while he prepared for his first exhibition, the 1919 Salon d'Automne.

By 1925, he was a member of the Committee for the Salon des Tuilleries where his paintings were shown. From then on, the artist was sought by collectors, and for fifty years his works were frequently shown in galleries in Paris, Brussels, New York, Pittsburgh, Sydney, London, Venice, and others throughout France and Switzerland.

He is represented in several museums in France: Musée d'Art Moderne and Cabinet des Étampes in Paris; Musée des Beaux-Arts in Nantes; and in Albi, Bagnols-sur-céze, Cambrai, Grenoble, and Cérés.
