Walter John BeauvaisBritish, 1942-1988
Although born in England Walter Beauvais is particularly associated with the French school of painting. Both his father (to whom he was apprenticed) and grandfather were artists of some note as indeed is his son (Paul Beauvais).
Walter’s childhood seems to have been spent in and between his father's studios in London and in Marseilles. He began "serious painting" in the late sixties and was very successful. His paintings are often simple in concept but are executed in an open and bright manner seen as typical of French Impressionist work. He is mostly known for his beach scenes. His works are represented in several galleries worldwide including England and Australia.
