Antoine Berjon (17 May 1754 - 24 October 1843) was a French painter and designer, and was among the most important flower painters of 19th-century France. He worked in a variety of media including oil, pastel, watercolour, and ink.
Berjon was born in St Pierre de Vaise, a commune of Lyon, to the son of a butcher, and he first studied drawing with the local sculptor Antoine-Michel Perrache (1726-1779). His early history is not clear; according to his uncorroborated biographer J. Gaubin, he may have studied medicine or a religious vocation, learning flower painting during his novitiate. He went to work as a designer of textiles in Lyon's important silk industry until its collapse with the French Revolution.
