Jules René Hervé was a French Academic painter, born in Langres, in Eastern France. 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 began his formal art studies in an evening school in Langres, France. Hervé was trained at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’arts Decoratifs of Paris, and studied with Fernand Cormon (French painter 1845-1924) and Jules Adler (French painter, 1865-1952). As early as 1910, his work was shown in Paris Salons where his paintings were described as “jewels” of French scenery. The French Government awarded him a travelling scholarship in 1924 and in 1925 he won a Gold Medal.
