This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Jules Francois Pages (1833-1910)

Jules F. Pages is known for his French inspired impressionist landscapes, and also for being the father of the notable artist Jules Eugene Pages. Born in New York City in 1833, J.F. Pages moved to San Francisco, California in 1857. He stayed in San Francisco and started an engraving business, and also attended the California School of Design.

He was closely associated with Northern California Impressionists and his style was more French influenced than his California contemporaries and often included Parisian and Oriental subjects. Pages used a soft brushstroke and his complex compositions were based on his strong knowledge of drawing. J.F. Pages was married to Annette Perrin, and their son, Jules Eugene (1867-1946) was born in San Francisco.

Painters, such as Julian Rix (1851-1903) and Jules Tavernier (1844-1889) frequented J.F.s engraving shop in that city, and it was Tavernier who instilled in Jules Francois son, young J.Eugene Pages a desire to travel to Paris to study.

Jules Francois Pages died in San Francisco in 1910.
