Roland DUBUC (1924-1998) French painter born in 1924 in Caudebec-les Elbeuf in Normandy, to a family of modest means, he was the sixth child in a family of 13 children. At 14, he had to start working and he joined a local company as an apprentice painter. He lived quite miserably in Rouen and stayed at the Salvation Army. He met painters BORDES, LE TRIVIDIC and FRECHON who took a liking to him and gave him advice.
He was the last painter of Montmartre at the time of Maclet, Genin, Utrillo, Gen-Paul, and he depicted all the strength and joie de vivre of bohemian life in Montmartre in his paintings.
He married in 1947 and he had a son that he would only get to know later on. After divorcing, Roland DUBUC moved to Le Havre where he met painters FRIBOULET and PAILHES. He sold some paintings to galerie HAMON and lived from day to day as a Jack of all trades to survive: a clown in a circus, newspaper vendor, but always continuing to paint and trying to sell his paintings.
In 1950, he decided to try his luck in Paris and continued to perform odd jobs for a living and to be able to paint. He met Michel DODDOLI who was a tailor on rue Victor-Massé at the time and later opened a gallery. M. DODDOLI exhibited him at the Grand Palais in the exhibition "Les Grands et les Jeunes d'Aujourd'hui".
In 1958, he won the silver medal of the city of Paris with a painting titled "La fanfare des pompiers de Montmartre".
In 1960, Roland DUBUC remarried to Edith LOISEL with whom he had two daughters. He then worked alongside the hairdresser Antoine to make clay sculptures to be used as models. In 1962, he exhibited some sculptures at the Galerie Contemporaine, rue de Châteaudun.
He separated from his wife in 1968 and then in 1972, he had his first solo exhibition as a painter, at Jacqueline Laugier, rue Lepic in Montmartre. He moved to Switzerland where he exhibited in a gallery in Geneva. He sold a few paintings to the Petit Palais.
In 1980, he returned to France and settled in Cherbourg at the house of a doctor friend.
In 1984, he returned to Paris and worked for a time for the Pittiglio Gallery. At the end of 1985, one of his old friends Jean Paul VILLAIN, who had been purchasing paintings for 20 years, opened a gallery on 29 rue de Miromesnil.
He signed a global exclusivity contract with this gallery. This was the beginning of the success of Roland DUBUC, the painter. His paintings began to be sold in the USA, Japan, Israel, Great Britain, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland...
He died in his studio in Elbeuf in Normandy on 27 February 1998.
