Edouard De Bergevin

1861 – 1925

Studying at the Painting Academy in Rouen at the same time as Frechon, Angrand and Delattre, he continued his training in Paris in Gérome’s studio, who considered him as one of his strongest pupils.

A highly esteemed portrait painter, illustrator and poster designer, he was also a refined landscapist: Often accompanied by his friend Delattre, he would walk in the countryside around the coast at Dieppedalle or Petite-Couronne, from where one could enjoy the atmosphere of the city streets and one hundred steeples.
