Web Description: 
Gilles Duliscouet (French, b. 1930), also known as Dulis, is known for his accomplished reverse paintings on glass that depict fantastic, somewhat surreal animal caricatures in amusing contexts that are both animal and human. To create a reverse painting on glass, the artist paints the image on the back side of the glass panel in reverse of the normal order, beginning with the highlights and ending with the background. The picture is then viewed from the front.
