Artist Biography

Antoine Berjon (1754-1843)

Antoine Berjon began his career in a butcher’s shop, working for his father in the suburbs of Lyon. He began to study medicine, but was soon diverted from this by the sculptor Perrache, who taught him to draw. With his newly aquired skill, Berjon joined a Lyonnaise silk factory where he began to paint. However, the business was ruined by the siege of Lyon and Berjon moved to Paris. He lived in poverty there for several years before he returned to Lyon to work for a manufacturer of embroideries. He painted stylized flowers and animals for the decoratioin of fabric, while at the same time establishing himself as a painter of portraits, miniatures and still lifes. From 1810 he taught flower painting at the École des Beaux Arts, until he retired in 1823. However his violent temper, limited output of paintings and reclusive nature meant that he died in comparative obscurity at the age of eighty-nine.
