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 dHonneur in 1887. Jean Beraud died in 1936.

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.
In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.
After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.
We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.
Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.
In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.
The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.
Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.
After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.
For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.
As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
