The milking of cows - Julien Dupré (1851-1910)

Julien Dupré was born in 1851 in Paris.

A pupil of Pils and Lehmann, Julien Dupré is a remarkable animal painter and landscape painter.
He exhibited at the Salon from 1876 to 1881 where he presented very beautiful scenes of harvest (most often collected in Picardy) and landscapes that prove his fidelity to the precept of Corot: "Ne jamais perdre la première impression qui nous a émus (Never lose the first impression that moved us)".

The year 1881 marked a turning point in his choices: his field of application tightened more and more, the landscape brought him to pastures and backyards, and soon it was the animal that interested Dupré more than his natural setting. He has no equal in describing the play of light on the animals 'coat, the peasants' clothes, and the surrounding countryside.
