After Treatment

Jules Dupré (1812-1889) was one of the chief members of the Barbizon school of landscape painters. He was the son of a porcelain manufacturer, and started his career in his father's studio. Dupré exhibited first at the Salon in 1831, and three years later was awarded a second-class medal. In the same year he came to England, where he was deeply impressed by the genius of Constable. From him he learned how to express movement in nature; and the district of Southampton and Plymouth, with its wide, unbroken expanses of water, sky and ground, gave him good opportunities for studying the tempestuous motion of storm-clouds and the movement of the sea driven by the wind. He received the cross of the Legion of Honour in 1848.
