JULES ADLER, PAINTING UNDER THE IIIrd REPUBLIC
29 JUNE — 22 SEPT. 2019
A painter from Franc-Comté born in Luxeuil-les-Bains, Jules Adler (1865-1952) is one of the naturalist painters who at the end of the 19th century embodied an alternate route between the avant-garde Impressionists and the more official academic art. The author of a historical painting that was oddly of its time, Adler who was very attached to the working class, is a committed witness to the industrialisation of France and Belgium. He painted the humblest in their harassing day-to-day but also in their fight for emancipation.
