In this talk, Art historian Catherine Wallace unveils the global impact of Jules Bastien-Lepage (1848 – 1884), the French rural realist painter. Delving into the late 19th century, Wallace illuminates how Bastien-Lepage's en plein air (outdoor) paintings depicting rural French peasants resonated across international art circles.
