Jules Breton, painter of peasant life by Annette Bourrut Lacouture( Book )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Jules Breton (1827-1906), known as one of the first 'peasant painters', created beautiful scenes of rural French life and was a highly popular figure among the Salon artists of his era. Taking his inspiration from his native Artois and from the landscapes of Brittany, where he stayed for long periods, he painted peasant women and men performing their daily activities, meticulously observing their world and making it a place of peace and harmony. During the second half of the nineteenth century, rewards and official decorations were heaped upon him, and his paintings were purchased not only by the emperor but also by collectors in America, Britain and Ireland. However, Breton's work became eclipsed by the avant-garde movements of the twentieth century, and he was eventually forgotten."

Jules Breton (1827-1906) figure parmi les peintres réalistes, puis naturalistes, qui contribuèrent à l'art académique florissant de la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle. Né à Courtières en Artois, il se consacre avec passion à la peinture de la vie rustique de sa région et de la Bretagne : manifestations religieuses, fêtes traditionnelles, coutumes et drames du monde rural ; son ?uvre est une véritable ode à la paysannerie. Élu à l'Académie des beaux-arts en 1886, il est le premier " peintre paysan ", comme il se définit lui-même, à devenir ainsi membre de l'Institut
