Jean Béraud (1849-1935), a French painter and commercial artist noted for his delightful vignettes of Belle Époque Paris, was born in Saint Petersburg to a French sculptor. His family moved to Paris after the death of their father. Béraud did not gain recognition until 1876, but after that, he rapidly became a popular painter of Parisian daily life. His appealing style stands somewhere between the Academic art of the Salon and that of the Impressionists. At the end of his life, Béraud dedicated his time to numerous exhibition committees. He died in 1935 and was buried in the Montparnasse Cemetery.
