Description

Working during the last half of the 19th century, Julien Dupré was an artist, considered by most, to be one of the leading exponents of the second genera­tion of Realist painters; a group that also includes Leon Lhermitte, Jules Bastien-Lepage and Pascal Dagnan-Bouveret.  Like J.F.

Breton, before them, these artists devoted their artistic careers to the depiction of the toils of the French peasant – often seen hard at work in the fields.  As Hollister Sturges states in Jules Breton and the French Rural Tradition (1982, Joslyn Art Museum)
