Léon Lhermitte was born in Aisne, France, in 1844. From humble origins, closely tied to rural life, most of his works are depictions of daily life in the countryside, like in this casual dinner scene. He lived for a long time between France and England where he worked as an engraver, before becoming famous at the Paris Salon of 1874. He was consecrated after 1880.
