Name: Victor Dubreuil
Dates: (??)
Nationality: American, active 1880-1910
Biography: Little is known about the still life and trompe l'oeil painter Victor Dubreuil. Evidence suggests that he worked in New York City during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Poor and unrecognized during his lifetime, he evidently traded paintings for food and drink; one anecdote has him doing so at the Dickens House Saloon at 38th Street and 7th Avenue. His favorite subject most likely the object of his desire seems to have been money: stacks of coins, barrels and boxes full of dollar bills, individual bills, and even thieves stealing money, as in one of his most famous paintings, Don't Make a Move, which shows the hand of a thief pulling money from a cash drawer.
