Léon-Victor Dupré, born in Limoges (Haute-Vienne) on June 18, 1816 and died in Paris 10th on October 31, 1879, was a French painter.

He was the youngest child of his brother Jules Dupré (1811-1889) and made his debut at the Salon of 1839 and exhibited until 1878. He painted landscapes of Normandy, Berry, Limousin, as well as the Île-de-France.
The two brothers settled in 1852 in the hamlet of Le Fay, between La Souterraine and Argenton-sur-Creuse, where they devoted themselves to painting from the motif, which they would later continue together in Barbizon. Their work is quite similar.
A more self-effacing personality than his brother, Léon-Victor Dupré was described by his friend Amédée Besnus (1831-1909): "He was a good devil, without prejudice, passionate, a gudgeon fisherman... not proud in the least, spiritual, he was the best boy that could be seen.
He had his studio at no 10 rue de Rochechouart in Paris.
