Antoine Bouvard

French 1870-1956 

Antione Bouvard was born Eloi-Noel Isidore Beraud in Saint-Etienne France. For most of his career he painted under both the name Antoine Bouvard and pseudonym Marc Aldine.

Bouvard trained at L’École des Beaux-Arts de Paris where he studied art and architecture. He began his career by painting copies of old masters in the Barbizon style. In addition to oils, he painted in gouache and watercolour, creating publicity posters and postcards, and illustrating children’s books. Bouvard became Director of Architectural Services for the Seine and was responsible for the construction of a number of well-known buildings in Paris including the Bourse du Travail and the Boulevard Morland.

In the late 1920s he began painting scenes of Venice, and it is these Impressionistic paintings for which he is best known. From 1930 onwards he only painted Venetian views, travelling between the Italian city, Paris, and London, where he sold his paintings. His paintings were influenced by Felix Ziem, and he used colour, light and warmth to depict the charm of the Venetian waterways.

Bouvard exhibited throughout Europe during his lifetime, and continues to be considered one of the most recognised and highly considered painters of Venetian scenes. His works are represented in collections worldwide.
