Biography: One of the most popular genre painters of the nineteenth century, Pierre Edouard Frère skillfully depicted comfortable domestic scenes in small paintings that were highly regarded in England and the United States, as well as in France. He entered the École des Beaux-Arts in his native Paris in 1836 and studied with the well-known painter and teacher Paul Delaroche (1797-1856). Frère exhibited widely, especially at the Salons in Paris (1842-86) and the Royal Academy in London (1868-85). He received many awards and was made a chevalier of the Legion of Honor in 1855. His works can be found in French private and public collections, including the museum at Chartres.
