Name: Louis Braquaval
Dates: (1856 - 1919)
Nationality: French
Biography: Louis Braquaval began to paint seriously after his marriage, with the financial support of his father-in-law. He worked closely with Eugène-Louis Boudin (1824-1898), a friend of his wife’s family, whose influence can be seen in his handling of sky and water in his river views and coastal scenes of northern France, painted in Normandy and near his native Lille. But he is best known for his city scenes, especially Parisian views.

While living at St. Valery, a small town on the Picardy coast, Braquaval met Hilaire-Germain- Edgar Degas (1834-1917), who introduced him to Parisian art circles. After 1900, Braquaval exhibited in most of the Paris Salons, where his paintings were well received. He was made a chevalier of the Legion of Honor in 1914. The First World War and failing health cut short Braquaval’s career, and it was only in 1969 that his work was reevaluated in a major exhibition at the Kaplan Gallery in London.
