Charles-Bertrand D'Entrayques

(French, 1850 - 1829)

The landscape and genre painter Charles D’Entrayques was born at Brive, France. After studying at the École des Beaux-Arts in Toulouse and in Paris under Isadore-Alexandre-Augustin Pils (1813-1875), he began exhibiting at the Paris Salon in 1876 and received an honorable mention there in 1899. He became an associate of the Société des Artistes Français in 1904. His genre subjects are often appealingly humorous depictions of children, as are his paintings of choirboys engaged in playful, if slightly mischievous, activities.
