Jules Adler. Painter of the people

daily, starting from Thursday, October 17, 2019 - 10:00, until Sunday, February 23, 2020 - 23:59

Jules Adler (1865-1952) was born into an Alsatian Jewish family at Luxeuil-les-Bains in Franche-Comté. The powerful and singular oeuvre of this painter of the second naturalist generation is little known to the public today, yet one of his pictures, The Strike at Le Creusot (1899), became an iconic image of the workers’ struggle and has been frequently reproduced in history books.
