Brushstrokes: Artist Jean-Georges Béraud

Renowned for his visual preservation of Paris’ decadent Belle Époque era, artist Jean-George Béraud captured the daily life of the bon vivant. Fashion, elegance & class, no detail was forgotten. Below are several of his exquisite masterpieces, depicting not only the extravagances of the affluent but as well as the ‘perfection’ of a more simpler life with La Brasserie. | Giuseppe
