JULES BASTIEN-LEPAGE (French / 1848-1884)

Jules Bastien-Lepage was born in Damvillers, Meuse. Bastien-Lepage studied under Cabanel at the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris. Jules Bastien-Lepage was a plein-air painter of rural scenes, influenced by Courbet and the Barbizon School, and himself influencing Manet and the Impressionists, and also English plein-air painters such as George Clausen. He was also a sought-after portraitist. Jules Bastien-Lepage made an enormous contribution to art in his short lifetime. Jules Bastien-Lepage only made 5 etchings himself, under the tutelage of Léopold Flameng; most etchings of Bastien-Lepage are, like our portrait of Sarah Bernhardt, interpretative etchings by others after Bastien-Lepage paintings.
