More Information

Working at the forefront of the Parisian art world during the 1830s and 1840s, Dupré received critical acclaim from the Salon for his captivating mix of the realistic and romantic. By sketching en plein air, Dupré was able to accurately capture the quality of light and evolving weather conditions—ideas that prefigured impressionist painting.
