Dupr worked as a landscapist, etcher and draughtsman. He trained with the decorative painter Johannes van Dregt and from 1767 with Jurriaen Andriessen at the Amsterdam Drawing Academy. He travelled to Switzerland and the Rhine, on his latter visit he was accompanied by his friends Jan Ekels the Younger and Jacques Kuyer. Dupr lived in Italy from 1785-90 on a grant from the Holland Scientific Society of Haarlem, and made views of the Roman campagna and cities. Afterwards he settled in Amsterdam.
