Isabelle Duret Dujarric is a French expressionist painter and one of the most important artists of her generation.

Inventing what critics call the ‘Stained Glass’ effect, her technique of sculpting paint to create unrivalled texture and dynamism – with gravity-defying chunks, gasoline-thinned drizzles and translucent layers – results in art that moves with light.

Isabelle is one of the most decorated artists of our time, having been named top-10 most influential French artist by newspaper Le Monde and receiving the prestigious Medals of Honour of both the Republic of France and the Regional Counsel of Burgundy. She was also awarded the Emblem of the Province of Hainan by the Academy of Fine Arts and Culture in China.

“After over 50 years of research, I try to achieve the greatest three-dimensionality and transformation possible according to light, shadow, stained-glass effects, and changes in the intensity of colours over the hours and the seasons. There can be infinite aspects to any single object.”
