"Dupin forged his own musical language, unrelated to any schools or aesthetic currents. Attracted by polyphony, he employed a proliferation of melodic lines and a highly charged, contorted harmony that obeyed no rules. As a result, his style is totally original ... The best of Dupin’s composition is in his mélodies, and especially in his choral canons, about 370 in all, inspired by diverse subjects and written for ensembles of two to 12 voices." Jacques Tchamkerten in Grove Music Online

Henri Meunier (1873-1922) was a Belgian lithographer, etcher, illustrator, bookbinder, and poster designer. "His keen sense of design, and his attraction to vibrant colors that draw in the viewer, made his art in high demand around Brussels in 1900. Aside from drawing many posters and designing quite a few postcards, all lithographic compositions, Meunier also was an etcher. In particular, his color aquatints of landscapes, whose colors are any bit as attractive as the ones used in his lithographs, remain as fresh as when they were conceived." Armstrong Fine Art.
