ADLER, JULES (1865–1952), French artist. A prolific painter of landscapes, Adler was better known for his urban and industrial scenes such as The Strike, The Factory Interior, and Towing the Barge. These works reveal his socialist outlook and his keen interest in social problems. Adler was regarded as a leading member of the realist school of painting. His son Jean (1899–1944), a painter of promise and integrity, was killed by the Nazis.
