Julien Dupré was one of the second generation of Realist painters in France. He painted humble subjects -- peasants tending farm animals and toiling in the fields -- and used a loose brushwork somewhat influenced by Impressionism; nonetheless his paintings possessed the same superb draughtsmanship and attention to detail that one would expect of a king's portrait.

Dupré was quite successful during his lifetime. His works were sought after and he was also a critical success, exhibiting successfully at the salons and being awarded several medals.
