DUBUFE, dụbụf′, Claude Marie (1790-1864). A French artist, born in Paris. He was a pupil of David, and began by painting mythological subjects. The best of this class is the “Apollon et Cyparisse” (in the Luxembourg). In 1827 he exhibited “Les Regrets” and “Les Souvenirs,” which were very successful. He then gave himself up to the painting of genre pictures and portraits. Among these latter are Louis Philippe and his daughter the Queen of the Belgians.
