Attr. Jules Dupre (France, 1811-1899) Barbizon painting of cows near a stream. St. Louis Art Museum labels verso. Christie's labels verso. Signed 'Jules Dupre' on the lower left. Oil on Canvas. Sight Size: 26.5 x 20 in. Overall Size: 36.75 x 30.25 in. Provenance: formerly at St. Louis art museum (on verso).In 1831, at the age of 20, he made his debut at the Salon - showing a number of landscapes and continued to exhibit there sporadically. That same year he was invited to London where he spent time studying the works of the English landscape artists and painting in the English countryside. It is believed that Dupr? was responsible for bringing the English landscape style to France and blending it with the style and images of the Barbizon school. In 1833 he exhibited a number of works at the Paris Salon and received a second-class medal. However, it was the works he exhibited at the Salon of 1835 that solidified his reputation in the hearts and minds of many of the artists of the Romantic school. D 1977
