He was a student of Pierre Grivolas in the fine arts. In this crucible, he rubs shoulders with Meissonnier, Bergier, Bill, Belladen and Chabaud who consider him one of theirs. He was part of the group of thirteen. In this environment particularly favorable to his devouring passion, he will quickly learn the alchemy of colors. Very close to Grivolas who will teach him the motif in Villeneuve, les Angles, la montagnette; it will quickly become shiny. A great collector Gaston Bouzanquet will present it to Charles-Roux and Detaille who will launch it in the galleries of Marseille, Lyon, Bordeaux then in Paris at George Bernheim and Devambez. Joseph Hurard realizes works of very high quality, it is thus for example, that he executes for the refineries of Lavera immense panels, a series of monuments of Nîmes for the tourist office of Nîmes. He will belong to the "Group of thirteen" then to the "New Group of Regional Artists", he will participate in all the Avignon exhibitions of the Vauclusian Society of Friends of the Arts, the Rhodanien salons, the exhibitions of Nîmes, Montpellier, Aix and the end of his life will exhibit regularly in the great Marseilles galleries Jouvène and Lespérut. His works are visible at the Palais de Justice in Nîmes, at the Avignon City Hall, at the Crau museum, and at the Ziem museum in Martigues. The priory of Sainte Victoire in Rochefort du Gard or Notre Dame de Rochefort du Gard was an outbuilding of the Benedictine abbey of Saint-André. This abbey was founded before the 8th century, near the tomb of Saint Cazarie, on Mont or Puy-Andaon, on the right bank of the Rhône, opposite Avignon. Ruined by the Saracens, and rebuilt by Charles Martel, others say by Charlemagne, it was again overthrown by the Hungarians. But it emerged a second time from its ruins, and soon we saw the monks meeting there in large numbers. From the year 976, Warnerius, bishop of Avignon, worked to make the monastic discipline flourish among them, repairing their church and their monastery with his own funds. It was then that this abbey gradually came back into possession of its former outbuildings or priories, and that it sent there religious, whose piety and wise administration exercised the most salutary influence from afar. The priory of Sainte-Victoire or Notre-Dame de Rochefort was among the possessions in which the Benedictines returned, and took advantage of the favors granted to them by the popes during the 11th and 12th centuries. Likewise, the papal acts given in the 13th century in favor of the Abbey of Saint André and its outbuildings specifically designate Notre-Dame de Rochefort.
