Description:
Jean Béraud (French, 1849-1936) Rue de Richelieu sous la pluie signed 'Jean Béraud' (lower left) oil on canvas 9 x 12½ in. (22.8 x 31.7 cm.) Béraud's images of Parisian life earned him the high praise of being 'Le Boilly de fin de siècle' from his contemporary Roger Ballu (Le Salon illustré, July 1889). Béraud clearly loved the city, and his pictures chronicle the customs and fashions of his era with precise detail. Belle Epoque journalist Paul Hourie wrote: 'when you paint scenes from everyday life, you have to place them in their context and give them their authentic setting. This means that, in order to be sincere, you have to photograph them on the spot, and forget about the conventions of the studio. As a result, Jean Béraud has the strangest life imaginable. He spends all of this time in carriages. It is not unusual to see a cab parked on a corner of a street for hours on end, with an artist sitting inside, firing off rapid sketches' (Offenstadt, p. 9). Béraud was the perfect flaneur, 'a passionate spectator whom we might liken to a mirror as vast as the crowd itself' (V. Steele, Paris Fashion - A Cultural History, New York, 1988, p. 90). Béraud's Paris and its denizens were always captured with the accuracy of a camera lens. His painter's eye was constantly drawn to places where people meet; theatres, cafés and of course restaurants. Béraud was particularly fond of capturing the effects of weather on the various mondaines of Paris, particularly the effects of wind and rain. No one could portray the unique effects of Paris in the rain like Jean Béraud. The city itself is bathed in the cool, silvery light of the overcast sky and the hustle and bustle of city life goes on despite the weather. Figures huddle beneath black umbrellas on the sidewalk, a gentleman rushes across the pavement in order to get out of the rain, and a couple take refuge in an alley, trying to keep dry while hailing a hackney cab. The palette is cool and restrained, yet captures perfectly that silvery light that is unique to Paris in the rain. The couple in the alley huddle beneath the sign for the restaurant Noel Peters, on the rue Richelieu. Located at 24 Passage des Princes, 9 rue Richelieu, the restaurant was famous for a dish created in 1860. The dish, 'Homard à l'americaine', is credited to Pierre Fraisse, who came from Sète in Languedoc and who had worked for a brief time in Chicago at a restaurant called 'Café americain'. Upon his return to Paris, Fraisse opened his restaurant, Noel Peters. Fraisse created the dish for a group of customers who were in a hurry and he only had lobsters to hand. He had to think fast, and he created a recipe that provided a much faster way to cook the shellfish than creating the traditional court buillion. Into a boiling pot of butter, tomatoes, crushed garlic, shallots, white wine, olive oil and a good dash of brandy he threw the chopped up lobsters. The name simply came to him when asked by his appreciative diners what the unusual dish was called, et voilà, 'Homard a l'americain'! The authenticity of this painting was confirmed by Patrick Offenstadt at the Wildenstein Institute on 21 March 2013. This painting will be included in the Wildenstein Institute's supplement to the Jean Béraud catalogue raisonné. (fig. 1) Rue de Richelieu, Paris, contemporary photograph.
