Barye taught him sculpture. His work is made of plasters transformed in bronze, cires of small dimensions. He mostly created Orientals groups relative to the hunt, exhibited at the Salon not before 1867. Some of his best works are: the bronze Equipages de chasse pour la gazelle en Egypte (1874), Chasse dans le Sahara (1875), Chasse à l’autruche in the Sahara (1876), Anier du Caire (1876 and Exposition Universelle of 1878), Cavalier et femmes arabes à la fontaine (1883). After 1883, Dubucand stopped participating at the Salon.
