Private collection

Jules Worms was born into a family of Parisian shopkeepers in the early years of the July Monarchy, a period in French history that is characterized by the cultivation of a thriving comic tradition in the visual arts. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, beginning in 1849 under Jean-Baptiste-Adolf Lafrosse, and made his debut at the Salon in 1859. In the early 1860s, Worms made the first of many trips to Spain, and was immediately drawn to Spanish culture and customs. As a result, his paintings of Spanish subjects with a subtle humorous comment on contemporary romance garnered much appreciation.

Worms became a member of the Society of French Artists in 1883, and won awards in 1867, 1868, 1869 and was made a member of the Legion of Honour in 1876. In addition to this work in the Syracuse University Art Collection, his work is held in the permanent collections of the Dijon Museum, the Museum of Modern Art in Paris and at the Nancy Museum.
