CHARLES BEAUVERIE (Lyon 1839  - 1923 Poncins)

Charles Beauverie stands for the liberation of the E´cole de Barbizon by the romance and is considered an important link to Impressionism.

Initially educated at the Academy in Lyon, then followed the École des Beaux-Arts. Around 1870 he sometimes stays in Auvers-sur-Oise, where he met Daubigny, Dr. Gachet and Vincent van Gogh. At that time Beauverie is in great demand as an etcher and is working for the publisher Cadart. His circle of friends also include Camille Pissarro, Paul Cézanne and Armand Guillaumin.

In 1888 Beauverie moves to Poncins in the Loire. The artist creates there a rich oeuvre of landscape paintings and puts together an impressive collection of art works from artist friends.
