Julie Dorus-Gras (1805 - 1896) was a Belgian operatic soprano. To begin her career she made a concert tour which took her to Brussels. Her concert was so successful, that Count de Liederkerke offered her a contract to sing operatic roles. Dorus acquired the name Gras on 19th April 1833, when she married one of the leading violinists in the orchestra of the Paris Opera. From a series of portraits published in 1838-43 by Aubert & co.
