Narrative: It is as the painter of "The Prodigal Son" that Edouard Dubufe, the distinguished Frenchman, was best known the world over. This huge three panel canvas was exhibited in New York in 1872, at a gallery on Broadway, where it attracted much attention. It afterwards made a tour of the country. The painter of " The Prodigal Son" was past sixty when he died. He was born in Paris on March 20, 1820. The portrait we publish shows him in his prime. He was the son of a portrait painter, Claude Marie Dubufe. Of the father it is said that he painted the prettiest women of the Restoration and of the days of Louis Philippe; and of the son, that he painted their daughters, which was lucky for both them and their art. In the story, a father has two sons. The younger son asks for his inheritance and after wasting his fortune (the word "prodigal" means "wastefully extravagant"), becomes destitute. He returns home with the intention of begging his father to be made one of his hired servants, expecting his relationship with his father is likely severed. The father welcomes him back and celebrates his return. The older son refuses to participate. The father reminds the older son that one day he will inherit everything. But, they should still celebrate the return of the younger son because he was lost and is now found. It is the third and final part of a cycle on redemption, following the Parable of the Lost Sheep and the Parable of the Lost Coin. In Western Catholic tradition, this parable is usually read on the fourth Sunday of Lent while in the Eastern Orthodox Church it is read on the Sunday of the Prodigal Son.
