French, 19th century, male.

Born c. 1835.

Draughtsman, caricaturist.

Dupendant's caricatures, mostly done in watercolour wash or heightened with gouache, have a bitter and aggressive style reminiscent of the art of Daumier.

He was rediscovered in the course of an exhibition on the centenary of the Commune in the Musée de St-Denis in 1971.
