Adolphe Alexandre LESREL (1839-1921) ✿

Adolphe Alexandre LESREL (1839-1921) was a French painter.
At the age of 22 he entered the École des beaux-arts in Paris, where he trained in the atelier of Jean-Léon Gérôme, whose style followed.

He also had Jean-Louis-Ernest Meissonier as a teacher. He remained faithful to academism throughout his life as a painter.

His works reveal a meticulous style, with every detail rendered with the utmost accuracy. The colors are rich and vibrant, the luxurious clothes and objects appear in almost all his works. It is worth mentioning the extraordinary virtuosity in making materials and fabrics realistic, such as silver, glass, silk, velvet, leather and wool.
Most of his works are kept in private collections and British and American museums. Two of his works are exhibited in French public art galleries.
