This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Amy Kleppinger of the Art Cellar Exchange:

Born Haverstraw-on-Hudson, New York in 1871, Jean Rachmiel was a painter
who would later be dubbed the "American Millet." His father, renowned
landscape painter Alexandre Rachmiel, trained Jean in drawing and painting.

At age 16, Jean studied at the Art Students League in New York City
under George de Forest Brush. In 1890, he went to Paris where he studied
under Jules Lefebvre and later at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts under Leon
Bonnat. In school, Rachmiel excelled as a figure painter but preferred
to paint scenes of Champagne and the peasants that resided there. Jean
exhibited annually at the Salon from 1898 on and was awarded the Salon's
gold medal in 1910 for a painting entitled "Le Braconnier." Many well
know American collectors would travel to Paris to purchase his paintings
and commission him to do portraits.

Jean Rachmiel exhibited at the Syracuse Museum of Fine Art in 1902 and
decorated the Corcoran Art Gallery with several large murals along with
his father between 1903 and 1905. In 1917, he worked as a Supply Officer
in Marseilles with the U.S. Shipping Board and French Commission where
he assisted in the recovery of works of art stolen by the Nazis. In his
late years, Jean moved back to his homeland and continued to paint until
he died in Detroit, Michigan in 1954.
