Jules-Alexis Muenier

1863-1942 France/Plein-Air

 

Brief Biography-Jules Alexis Muenier was born in Vesoul, France, in 1863. He studied at the Beaux-Arts de Paris under Jean-Léon Gérôme, and with the advent of photography, he used it as an aid to perspective. In 1921, the Académie des Beaux-Arts admitted him, and he exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1887 and 1891, which led to his success. In 1895, he won the Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur. Muenier spent most of his life in Coulevon near Vesoul.
