DUBUFE, Edouard Marie Guillaume (1853—). A French painter, born in Paris. He was the pupil of his father, Edouard Dubufe, and of Mazerolle. His works include figures and portraits, but he is especially known by his large allegorical paintings, executed with much freedom and skill in design. Notable among these are his “Sacred and Profane Music” and “The Trinity of Poets.” He decorated with great elegance the ceiling of the foyer of the Comédie Française, portions of the Hôtel de Ville, of the Salle des fêtes de l'Elysée, and the new Sorbonne. He received a first-class medal in 1889, and was made a member of the Legion of Honor in the same year.
