Jean Béraud, 1849-1935, was a French painter. He painted many scenes of Parisian daily life during the Belle Époque in a style that stood somewhere between the academic art of the Salon and that of the Impressionists. The artist received the Légion d'honneur in 1894. Jean Béraud paintings often included truth-based humour and mockery of late 19th-century Parisian life, along with frequent appearances of biblical characters in then contemporary situations. Oil painting such as Mary Magdalene in the House of the Pharisees aroused controversy when exhibited. -- The Copyright of Scripts is Reserved by Toperfect.
