The Emile Series #4: Francois Emile Barraud

François Barraud (1899 –1934) was a Swiss painter.
François Barraud painted mainly still lifes, female nudes and portraits, including several double portraits of himself and his wife, Marie.
His precise, realist style of painting developed under the influence of the old Flemish and French masters he had studied at the Louvre.
Barraud suffered periods of illness throughout his life and died of tuberculosis in Geneva, in 1934, at the age of 34.
