Léon Augustin Lhermitte (1844 - 1925) was a French painter of realism and closely associated naturalism. His favorite subjects were landscape scenes that often showed the simple peasant life. Lhermitte was born the son of a teacher in the region of Aisne, north of Paris. At the age of 19 he went to Paris and studied at the École Impériale de Dessin. His teacher was the well-known painter Lequoc de Boisbaudran, who also taught Rodin . With him, he took, among other things, the course "drawing from memory". His first drawing was already issued a year later in the Paris Salon. Lhermitte had the big breakthrough with his first painting in 1866. During a visit to London in 1869, he met the painter Alphonse Legros , who eventually introduced him to the art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel. Lhermittes paintings sold well in this gallery and were very well received.

Lhermitte has received many awards throughout his career. So he was admitted to the Legion of Honor and his painting "The Harvest" was awarded a medal in 1874 by the Paris Salon. The highlight of his career was the 1882 published work "payment of harvest workers". Lhermitte had finally become a popular artist of his time. He had many admirers, including Rodin, Puvis de Chavannes and especially Vincent van Gogh . He was enthusiastic about the realistic representation of the characters in Lhermittes pictures and his innovative use of pastel painting. Van Gogh is said to have said about Lhermittes works once that he has seen nothing more beautiful for years. He also compared his technique with light and colors, with that of Rembrandt .

Lhermitte, on the other hand, admired the French painter Jean-Francois Millet , who was also his greatest role model. The picture "The Gleaners" shows how strong the influence was. Because it not only bears the same name as Millet's paintings, but they show almost the same scene with similar figure constellations. After the First World War, Lhermittes health deteriorated, which was never very good. In his late years, he was therefore too weak to work on larger projects. So in his last active years he devoted himself mainly to pastel painting. He died in his birthplace Mont-Saint-Père. © Meisterdrucke
