About the Artist
Louis Adolphe Hervier, French, (1818-1879) was a pupil of his father, Marie Antoine Hervier, a successful miniature painter. He worked as a painter, engraver, draughtsman, and lithographer.
Though his work was praised by fellow artist of his time — Champfleury, Corot, Gautier and Bresdin — Hervier gained little financial success and his works are rare. His usual subjects are rural scenes and landscapes from Normandy, Bretagne, Beauce, and Southern France. [DES-4/07]
