Exhibiting at the Paris Salon from 1875 onwards, Dagnan-Bouveret was one of the leading French artists of the naturalist school, specializing in peasant scenes of Brittany as well as mystical-religious compositions, and was one of the first artists to use photography as a means of bringing greater realism to his paintings.

Self-addressed by the collector. The Mecklenburg physician Scharlau (b. 1888) assembled a collection of artists' autographs by personal application.
