Jules-Alexis Muenier (1863-1942) was a French Academic painter. He studied under Jean-Leon Gerome at the Beaux-Arts Acadamie. He settled in the village of Coulevon in Gerome's former home and exhibited often at the Salon, achieving his greatest success during the turn of the century.
Tramps (1895) at the Assemblee Nationale. I'm inclined to class Muenier as a Naturalist because of his content, but his Academic training is clear in the figure work, draping, and precise depiction of water-reflection. Perfection!
The Catechism Lesson (1890) at the Musee des Beaux-Arts, Besanacon. It tells quite a story of different responses to Sunday school. I was usually the kid on the left.
