    Jean Béraud was one of the most famous painters of Paris during La Belle Époque. Rather like his contemporary Gustave Caillebotte (1848-1894) his evocative paintings of Parisian high society glimpsed in the gardens, salons and boulevards of the French capital are a blend of the academic art of the Salon and that of his friend Édouard Manet and the other French Impressionists.

    Jean Béraud studied at the Lycée Bonaparte before enrolling with the studio of Léon Bonnat (1833-1922). Béraud first exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1873. His association with Alexandre Bernheim (1839-1915), one of France’s most influential dealers, helped bring him considerable commercial success and by 1890 Beraud had established himself as the painter of Parisian life.

    Jean Beraud was made a Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur in 1887 and an Officer in 1892. Today his paintings are found in the National Gallery in London, the Musée d’Orsay in Paris and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
