He was made a member of the Society of French Artists in 1885 and exhibited regularly there, obtaining an honourable mention in 1889. Lesrel was made an associate of the Salon de la Nationale Beaux Arts in 1890 and exhibited at the Salon of this Society. He was very much influenced by the conceptional work of Meissonnier and became a master of genre painting.
Cavaliers playing cards, morning visitors, letter writers, a cavalier refreshing, the armourers or servants at domestic employment constitute many of the subjects used in Lesrel's interior scenes. Lesrel's style is polished and is extremely rich in detail. Every surface is marvellously represented with a refined technique; presenting us with exquisite and desirable costume pieces.
Works by the artist are held in the museums of Digne, Nantes, New York, Rouen, Saint Lo and Sydney.
