Etienne Alphonse Dinet entered the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, in the studio of Pierre-Victor Galland. But it was probably William Bouguereau and Tony Robert-Fleury who had a real influence on him, the young painter having taken their courses at the Académie Julian, a much freer and less academic place. In 1882, he exhibited for the first time at the new Salon des artistes français and the following year, he received an honorable mention, then in 1884, a medal. In 1888-1889, he exhibited at Georges Petit's as part of the "Group of Thirty-Three" (or XXXIII), which included French and foreign artists, women and men, on the fringe of certain trends, and presenting a wide variety of tones. Selected for the Universal Exhibition of 1889 (Paris), he obtained a silver medal and, with Meissonier, Puvis de Chavannes, Rodin, Carolus-Duran and Charles Cottet, founded the National Society of Fine Arts. In 1893, he was among the founding members of the Society of French Orientalist Painters and participated in their first official exhibition at the Palais de l'Industrie in Paris.
In 1894, he participated in the Universal Exhibition in Antwerp.
In July 1896, he was named Knight of the Legion of Honor and participated in the International Exhibition of the Centenary of Lithography (Paris).
