Jules Dupré

(1811 - 1889)

French landscapist Jules Dupré’s first exposure to art was through his father’s porcelain painting factory, in which he worked.

During a visit to Great Britain, Dupré discovered the artworks of English landscape painters and notably the ones of John Constable. From then on, his landscapes expressed more movement and light. He was part of the Barbizon School (under the leadership of Theodore Rousseau and Jean-Francois Millet) an art movement that introduced Realism. Dupré showed a preference for using dramatic sunset effects along with stormy skies and seas as the subjects of his paintings.
