Julien Dupre was one of the second generation of French Realist painters. His subjects were often humble - peasants tending farm animals and Haymakers working in the fields. Dupre's paintings are somewhat influenced by Impressionism - in his loose brushwork - however, they also possess the superb draughtsmanship and attention to detail.
