Charles Beauverie

1839 – 1923

Charles Beauverie began training as an artist at l’École des Beaux-Arts de Lyon in 1855, later moving to Paris to enroll in Gleyre’s atelier in 1863. He quickly became a celebrated member of the school of Lyon and was awarded a first class medal in the Paris Salon in 1881. In 1888, he moved to Poncin in Loire, and focused his energy on painting striking pastoral scenes of the banks of the Lignon. An accomplished engraver as well as a painter, he was particularly esteemed in England and drew inspiration from such contemporaries as Daubigny, Corot, and Chintreuil and Millet.
