Biography of Jules Herve

An impressionist French artist whose subjects ranged from rural genre to Parisien city scenes and whose reputation was for shimmering colors, Jules Rene Herve was born in Langres in eastern France.  He first studied art in evening classes in his hometown, knowing as a child he wanted to be an artist.  Then he enrolled in the School of Decorative Arts in Paris, and in 1910, first exhibited a painting in the Salon of French Artists.  In 1914, he received the Medaille d'Argent (silver medal) from the French Artists association, and from that time was a regular exhibitor at the Paris Salons.  However, his painting career was interrupted because of serving in the Army for the duration of World War I.

He had earned a teaching certificate, and from 1911 to 1943, with the exception of his war service, was an art instructor for many students.

As a painter, he preferred solitude, and was not focused on publicity or being a part of any 'group' of like-minded painters.

His paintings are in collections in Pads, Langares, Saint-Etienne, Annecy and Tourcoing France; and in Chicago at the Art Institute, and the Dahesh Museum in New York City.
