Edmond Marie Marie Maurice Dutry was a Belgian painter and draughtsman born on 30 August 1897 in Kalken (East Flanders). He was the son of Albert Dutry, a prestigious lawyer, justice of the peace, painter and art critic, and Marie Odile Dutry-Tibbaut, a watercolour painter and pastelist. 

After the First World War, he became a painter and had a studio on the Recolettenlei. He exhibits regularly at the Ghent Salon, painting mainly portraits, figures, still lifes and many Ghent cityscapes.

Using a very personal technique, her work, especially her portraits, is very expressive and rigorously executed, where the search for character is taken to the extreme.

Edmond Dutry died in Ghent on 8 February 1959 at the age of 61.
