Default in search of the facts

I have talked with someone who's family has two paintings by DuBois that correspond with the impressionistic open park with ladies and parasols, etc.
I think they bought the two pieces from an art dealer they are famliar with, so I intend to pursue this avenue in an attempt to gain some information.

I am trying to find out more about this artist, and in paricular, a nice oil that has the marking " m.328. " on the back of the frame.

Hopefully, more info will become available about this artist and paintings, including a sense of what values might be deemed reasonable.

It will be a good thing to have confirmable information.

Do you know what price they paid for the paintings?

Or does anyone know what price a Henri Du Bois painting sells for?

I, too, have a large painting signed by Du Bois: impressionist style of ladies in 'victorian' dress with parasols etc. by a lake with sailing boats.

I would be grateful if you could email me at: markone2one@gmail.com

hi i was checking my collections when i stumbled on the forum. i also have a very pretty impressionism style water front scene with Victorian ladies by Du Bois. It is light blue, 24x36, marked on the back with the number 325 and in the front a illegible torn price tag. i brought this at a California estate sale 18~20 year ago with several other oil paintings including those from Jim Sloan, A. Smith. Although i didn't pay much at the time of purchase, some of these paintings are now fetching several hundred to over a thousand now. I believe they are made in the 60-70's and certainly worth hanging if you like them. If there is a site dedicated to Henry Du Bois, I would like to share the image of my painting.

Thumbs down Light blue Du Bois 24x36

My previous message contains a mistake. I mentioned that the painting I got were probably made in the 60-70's. This is obviously wrong for Du Bois. He died in 1932 ("painter Henri-Jean Dubois (1883-1932)", from the original post)

Default Got one

I picked up a very nice DuBois at a goodwill in West Palm Beach FL. It is of the same theme as some of the others people have discribed. A single lady in victoian attire looking out over a lake with a few sailbaots in distance. Done in impressionist style. Heavey blues mostly pastel. To the guy that was looking for work by is grandfather, if you haven't figured out yet, this is not the same henri dubois that people here seem to be discussing. This Henri Dubois signs in all capital letters in print not script. If anyone gets a collection of images together, let us know.

I recieved on of these paintings from my mother after she passed away. It has the Victorian mother and daughter in pastels with parasols and a lake as well. I even have a very old sticker with an original painting number. I am also looking for information on this artist.

Forgive me if this is a double post. I just joined this site and i'm trying to figure it out.
Is this like the painting you have? And did you find out it's value?
Thanks

Default dubois

I have a dubois as well that is 36x24 and its a really pretty picture, woman in a blue dress with umbrella overlooking a sailboat. Pastel and pink/blue hues throughout. Its a really nice painting. To me it looks between 45-100 years old. I paint oil and its done really well.

It sounds like we all have the same guy and nobody here seems to know who he is. One said 1880's-1930's and another said 1960-70 california. Signed in script.
