Jules Jacques Veyrassatwas a French painter and engraver of the School of Barbizon . Jules Jacques Veyrassat studied in Paris in the studio of Henri Lehmann , and exhibited his first works at the Salon in 1848 . Veyrassat was widely distinguished in France by his painting, and he attracts attention when he began working as an engraver in the 1860s . Between 1866 and 1869, his engraved work earned him several medals. The British scientist Philip Gilbert Hamerton asked him to collaborate on several of his books on the art of engraving: Chapters on Animals (1874) with Karl Bodmer , Etching and Etchers (1880), and a third edition in which others participated artists. He received a medal for his painting in 1872. Veyrassat was appointed Knight of the Legion of Honor in 1878. He is one of the most awarded painters and engravers for his work on nature. He is attached to the Ecouen School , where he had a room, and attended the classes of Pierre-Édouard Frère , of which he became a friend. It was Pierre-Édouard Frère and Charles-François Daubigny who encouraged him to practice etching . He produced four engravings, among others, for the album L'Eau forte en ... (1874-1881) published by Cadart. He is also associated with the Barbizon School . His work is close to that of Charles Jacque or Jean-François Millet whom he knew well. In a realistic register, he bases his work on the observation of the rural life of the deep France of the time. His subjects deal with the themes of breeding and horse labor in farming life. He never left his home country, but his fame has traveled all over Europe. Jules Jacques Veyrassat is buried in Paris at the Père-Lachaise cemetery ( 44th division).
