Biography of Adolphe Alexandre LesrelFrench Academic Classical artist
born 1839 - died 1921
Adolphe Alexandre Lesrel (1839 - 1929), Throughout the eighteenth century History Painting, in England and France, was considered the highest form of art. The first half of the nineteenth century saw the rise of the historical novel, through the writings of Walter Scott (1771 1832), disseminated throughout Europe. In France this new vogue was exemplified by the plays and novels of authors like Alexander Dumas (1802 1870) with his "Henry III” or "The Three Musketeers”.
In the mid-nineteenth century in England the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and their highly romanticized paintings of the past continued this widespread interest. This interest in the past led to the development of a new genre of history painting. Foremost in this genre was Jean Louis Ernest Meissonier (1815 1891) whose meticulously researched and detailed paintings of an idealized view of the past paved the way for the likes of Adolphe Alexandre Lesrel.

greatly influenced by Meissonier, an artist
whose popularity extended throughout Europe
and the United States, Lesrel adopted his

researched to ensure the
