Mr. and Mrs. Chester Dale Dine Out, oil on canvas painting by Guy Pène du Bois, 1924, Metropolitan Museum of Art

Guy Pène du Bois (1884-1958) was an early 20th century American painter. Born in the US to a French family, his work specialised in the culture and society around him: cafes, theatres, and in the twenties, flappers.

In 1940, he published his autobiography: Artists Say the Silliest Things.

His son was the French-American author and illustrator William Pène du Bois.
