The works of French realism painter Jules Breton (1827 - 1906) are strongly influenced by the French landscape, the love of tradition and simple rural life. Breton himself was born in a small village in Pas-de-Calais. He lived in a house with his father, his grandmother, his younger brother Émile and his uncle Boniface. Since his mother died when Breton was four, his father was mainly responsible for his upbringing. Initially, Breton was still studying at a college near his hometown. When he meets the Belgian painter Félix De Vigne in 1842, he is enthusiastic about the talent of the young Breton. De Vigne convinced the family to let him study art. The following year Breton went to Ghent and began his education at the Academy of Fine Arts. There he was taught by Hendrik Van Der Haert and De Vigne, who later became his father-in-law.

After training in Ghent and studying Flemish masters with Gustaaf Wappers in Antwerp, Breton moved to Paris in 1847. There he wanted to develop his technique and his style at Ecole des Beaux-Arts. In Paris, he met and became friends with some of the other great painters of realism, such as François Bonvin and Gustave Brion . In his early days in Paris, Breton tried for historical, and later also for political motives, influenced by the revolution of 1848. Breton, however, found that he was ultimately more attracted to the scenic motives he knew from his homeland. For example, his most important works include motifs such as "The Return of the Honorary Readers", "Rapeseed Sifting Girl" or "The Blessing of the Fields".

Breton was a contemporary of Vincent van Gogh . But unlike Van Gogh, who lived poorly during his lifetime, Breton was very successful during his lifetime. He was able to sell many of his works directly to museums, to art dealers or collectors. Therefore, he was able to work for several months on a work. Van Gogh is said to have admired Breton, but did not dare to visit him. Breton died at the age of 79 years. His daughter Virginie Demont-Breton also became a painter and was one of his students. © Meisterdrucke
