FAQ’s - Julien Dupré

I have the following work - Haying Time - An Approaching Storm. It is a black and white work that measures about 3 x 4 feet and has the following verbiage centered below the picture: "Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1882 by Fishel Adler & Co. at the office of the librarian of Congress at Washington". Is there any information that you can give me on this work of art, or do you know somewhere that I may obtain some information?

What you have is a reproduction of Julien Dupre's 1881 Salon painting - La Récolte des Foins (photo of the original work shown below). This work was widely reproduced and currently has only decorative value.
