Biography   Jules Turcas


Jules Turcas belonged to the first wave of artists at the Old Lyme Art Colony, a group that produced paintings in a style that has been referred to as the American Barbizon.  He was born in Cuba and is first listed as a resident of New York City in 1893.  In 1894, William Merritt Chase (1849-1916) produced a portrait of Turcas in Chase's well-known 10th Street Studio.  The finished painting depicts the young artist as a handsome and enigmatic figure, who's dark and nearly indistinct features are echoed by the brown and black tonalities of the composition.  This representation from over a century ago seems appropriate in present day, as both details of his life and examples of his artwork are surprisingly scarce.
