Jean Béraud | Le coup de vent


Jean Béraud 1849-1935, French painter and illustrator, born in St. Petersburg, son of a French sculptor. Studied law in Paris, then turned to painting after the Franco-Prussian War and studied for two years at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts under Bonnat. Exhibited at the official Salon 1873-89, then from 1890-1929 at the Salon de la Société Nationale. Member of the Société des Pastellistes Français 1885.
Frequented fashionable salons and received many commissions for portraits, but was chiefly known for his genre paintings of late 19th century Parisian life, which often combined truthfulness of observation with a note of humour. Also made a few paintings of religious subjects c.1891-1901, which aroused controversy because of his practice of depicting biblical scenes in contemporary dress. Awarded a gold medal at the 1889 Paris International Exhibition. Died in Paris. | Published in: Ronald Alley, Catalogue of the Tate Gallery's Collection of Modern Art other than Works by British Artists, Tate Gallery and Sotheby Parke-Bernet, London 1981, p.49
