Bouvard was born at St. Etienne in France in 1875. His early artistic education was undertaken at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, where he spent three years under a scholarship. His birth name was Eloi Noel Beraud although he signed his paintings Bouvard, Marc Aldine and Pelletier, amongst other pseudonyms but it is by Bouvard that he is best known.
Study trips followed throughout Europe, where he began to paint the landscapes of Southern Europe and the Mediterranean coastline. Most of his output went through a dealer in Paris who recommended that he consider Venice as a subject. From that point his career never looked back.
Gladwell’s held the first one-man exhibition of his work in Britain in 1928, from which the late Queen Mary purchased two examples of his work. Mr. Fuller continued to acquire paintings from this fine artist up until Bouvard died in 1956.
Whilst Bouvard’s subject matter is similar to Canaletto and Guardi, he differs from these great artists by his use of a free impressionist technique, with the introduction of more colour and warmth. Examples of this fine French artist’s work can be found in private collections throughout the world.

A sweep of colour creates light on the water and a shimmering reflection. Bouvard was a master of golden light and hidden shadows
