Jean Béraud

1849-1935 France-Realism

 

Brief Biography-Jean Béraud was born in Saint Petersburg. His father died when he was four years of age, after which his mother decided to move to Paris.
1872 was the beginning of his portrait studies under Léon Bonnat. After a couple of years his style leaned wholly towards impressionism. The works of Degas and Manet had a strong impression on him. Everyday street life became the focus of his attention; he painted people from a roadside cab when he wasn't in his studio in Montmartre. In 1894, he was awarded the Légion d'honneur. He remained single until his death in 1935.
