ETIENNE DINET (French / 1861-1929)

Étienne Alphonse Dinet was born in Paris. Dinet was a pupil of Bouguereau and of Tony Robert-Fleury at the Académie Julian. An Orientalist, Étienne Dinet was the co-founder of the Société des Peintres Orientalistes Français with Paul-Alexandre Leroy. Dinet was also closely associated with Lucien Simon, with whom he first travelled to Algeria. Étienne Dinet was not a mere voyeur of the culture of North Africa; he converted to Islam, and changed his name to Hadj Nasr Ed Dine Dini. The Algerian government opened a museum in his honour at Bou-Saâda in 1993.
