Jules Adler, La Mère, 1899,
Muzeum Narodowe w Poznaniu
Exhibition
From Thursday 17 October 2019 until Sunday 23 February 2020

Né à Luxeuil-les-Bains en Franche-Comté, au sein d’une famille juive d’origine alsacienne, Jules Adler (1865-1952) est un peintre naturaliste à l’origine d’une œuvre aussi forte que singulière. Il est aujourd’hui peu connu du grand public, bien qu’une de ses toiles, La Grève au Creusot (1899), soit devenue une icône des luttes ouvrières.
