Béraud

Jean BÉRAUD (1849-1935) was an attentive observer of Parisian life and a chronicler of the Belle Époque. His paintings reflect the new urban face of Paris. In his views of the great thoroughfares of the capital, its celebrated or picturesque quarters—from the Champs-Élysées to Montmartre—he peopled the scene with Parisians in all their diversity: elegant ladies, gentlemen strollers, drinkers of absinthe and billiard players, the "petit rats" in the corps de ballet of the Opera, milliners, and ice skaters. The catalogue—the first dedicated to this too-long-neglected painter—inventories and reproduces 478 paintings illustrating a by gone world.
