Jean Béraud

The Belle Époque: A Dream of Times Gone by

Volume I
Patrick Offenstadt

Jean Béraud (1849–1935) was an attentive observer of Parisian life and a chronicler of the Belle Époque. Béraud’s paintings portrayed the modern, urban features of Paris. In his views of the city’s boulevards, of its famous and picturesques districts, from the Champs-Élysées to Montmartre, Béraud captured Paris in all of its diversity. He painted “élégantes,” wanderers, absinthe drinkers, pool players, opera dancers, modists or ice-skaters. Jean Béraud, La Belle Époque, the first catalogue dedicated to this overlooked artist, gathers 478 paintings representing a world gone by.
