    Art Brokerage: Dominique Dorie French Artist: b. 1958. Dominique Dorie was born in Versailles in 1958. At the age of sixteen he began working in the Louvre as a restorer of sculptures. He enjoyed the opportunities to study the many masterpieces hanging on the walls of the great museum and felt impelled to sketch them but had very little free time to do so. Nevertheless he had several small " exhibitions " by hanging his work in the evenings on the fences of the church of St. Germain des Pres. 1977 marked a turning point for Dominique Dorie. He won a scholarship offered by the city of Paris which enabled him to enroll in a night course in drawing. As his skills in that field improved, he developed a desire to use color and began to paint in oil. From 1974 on, Dorie had participated in a number of exhibitions in towns surrounding Paris. He also had two one-man shows in Paris and one in Strasbourg between 1982 and 1984. Though Paris is the center of art in France, working there can be accompanied by many distractions. At the age of twenty-four Dorie decided he needed surroundings with greater calm, greater quiet, so he moved to a small village on the edge of the sea in Normandy where he has worked to improve his handling of both light and color. In 1985 Dominique Dorie exhibited his work in the Salon de Criel and in the Salon d'Orly. He was awarded the Prix du Salon in the latter exhibition. In 1984 and 1985 he exhibited in the prestigious Salon d'Automne. In 1986 Dorie won the Medaille d'Or at an exhibition in Deauville.
