Naturalism   •   Jules Bastien Lepage @ Wikipedia

Jules-Bastien-Lepage was born into the rural life of a large farming family in Lorraine. Daily working in and with nature in mind, Lepage devoted himself to studies of landscape motifs after studying at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris.

Lepage developed an impressionistically influenced style painted with lightened palettes and light reflections in his realistic depictions. The surfaces show an academic accuracy and fineness. Following his role model Millet Lepage painted his work "Heuerte", a painting that was trend-setting for the open-air painting. It was followed by work on the peasant daily work. The picture "Reisigsammler" places people in the spotlight next to the landscape.

Involved in the war for his homeland Lorraine was a change of direction in the work Lepages instead. Back from the war, Jules exhibited at the Paris Salon. Marked by the upheavals in the country, Jules made a mark of veneration with "Johanna of Orléans". While many artists of his time exhibited sculptures by Jeanne d'Arc, Lepage Johanna painted in her parents' garden. Much criticism earned the artist for the representation of an appearance. The mental figure is not suitable for a naturalistic painter. In his last years, Jules devoted himself more to portraiture and traveled until he succumbed to cancer at the age of 36. © Meisterdrucke
