"(Fr.) Paris. Medal 2nd cl. 1833, Legion of Honor 1849, Med. 2nd cl. 1867, officer of the Legion of Honor 1870. A landscape. 12 x 16. Theophile Gautier, the celebrated critic says of this painter: 'The young generation, who did not see the splendid putting forth of art which followed the revolution of July is astonished before the pictures of Jules Dupre, by this boldness, this zeal and this brilliancy. We are no longer accustomed to these superb extremes, to this excess of strength, to this overflowing of power, to these full-faced struggles with nature. this excessive scale dazzles the eyes habituated to the sober regime of gray.'"
