Franco-Comtois painter, Jules Adler (1865-1952) made a career in Paris in the movement of naturalist artists. These painters, influenced by the novels of Zola, invented, around 1870, a painting of social life, strongly concerned by the working world of labour and rurality.
The exhibition - which brings together the majority of works held in public collections as well as several belonging to private collections - is organised along a nine-section thematic itinerary, which reflects the diversity and richness of the work of art. Adler, caught between modernity and academism.
This exhibition is co-produced with the Dole Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum La Piscine de Roubaix. It is recognized as being of national interest by the Ministry of Culture / Directorate General of Heritage / Museum Service.
