Jean Beraud art prints and posters

This Belle Époque painter and watercolourist was born to a French family living in St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1849. He is best known today for his paintings of Parisian Society at the turn of the century and for his detailed depictions of the fashions and customs of late nineteenth century France.

After the death of his father in 1853, the family returned to Paris, where Beraud was educated and where he took part in the great defence of the city during the Siege of Paris in 1870. Subsequently, he became a pupil of the Atelier of Bonnat in 1871 and made his exhibition debut at the Paris Salon in 1873.

He took his inspiration from the Impressionists, many of whom were well-known personally to him, and from modern life in order to create his own particular and naturalistic genre.

Beraud was one of the founders of the National Society of Fine Arts and he exhibited there between 1910 and 1929. He received a Gold Medal from the Society of French Artists in 1889 and became a Chevalier of the Legion d’Honneur in 1887. Jean Beraud died in 1936.
