Gentle grass or lavender fields grace many paintings by French master artist Dominique Dorie. His works are collected worldwide for their simplicity, strength, and range of colors. He is at home with florals, as much as he is with boats and fields in southern France. His works reflect harmony of nature, and offer a gentle look though a painter's brush strokes. The artist who once hung his work on the fences around the church of St. Germain des Pres has grown much. 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 & 1985 he exhibited in the prestigious Salon d'Automne; In 1986 he won the Medaille d'Or at an exhibit in Deauville; He has since become one of the most highly regarded painters of his time and is listed in the prestigious Benezit Encylcopedia.
