Jules René Hervé  (French, 1887-1981) 

whitespace
Jules René Hervé (French, 1887–1981) was an Academic painter, born in Langres. Known for his paintings of cityscapes and landscapes, Hervé painted in an impressionistic style that captured the shimmering texture of the city and the softer light of the countryside. Hervé was trained at the Ecole nationale supérieure d’arts decoratifs of Paris, and studied with Fernand Cormon (French 1845–1924) and Jules Adler (French, 1865-1952). As early as 1910, his work was shown in Paris Salons where his paintings were described as “jewels” of French scenery. Hervé was awarded multiple honors during his lifetime, including a golden medal at the Universal Exhibition of 1937. His work is included in collections of the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Dijon, and the Chicago Art Institute.

  The artist was born at Langres in France in 1887. He began his studies at the School of Decorative Arts and the Fine Art School.
  He exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Francais for the first time in 1910 and 1914 he won the Silver Medal for the same society. He joined the French army for the war but took up painting when he returned in 1920.
  The French Government awarded him a travelling scholarship in 1924 and in 1925 he won a Gold Medal. He also won a medal at the International Paris Exhibition in 1937. Between 1911 and 1943 he taught other artists and he also won the Belle Table Prize and the Leguay Prize.
  His work has been purchased by the most of the leading museums in France and although he represented the purest tradition of French art and paints with great impressionism, he was completely unaffected by the current fashion of art. He has always sought to master the technical secrets of art and painted with a marvellous harmony of colour and light.
  Elected Vice President of the Salon des Artistes Francais and a member of The Jury of the Society of French Artists.
