This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A portrait, figure and genre painter in oil and watercolor, Augustus Bouvier specialized in  elegantly attired women as subjects.  They were primarily English aristocracy, but included portraits and figure groups from the Middle East and Italy.  Augustus Bouvier was also a book illustrator whose work included The Vicar of Wakefield by Oliver Goldsmith.

Augustus Bouvier was the son of Paris-born artist Jules Bouvier (1800-1867), who moved to London with his family in 1818.  The younger Bouvier was a student at the Royal Academy of London beginning 1841, and followed this education with further study in France and Italy.  From 1852, he exhibited for many successive exhibitions at the Academy,  and entries included portraits of Jessica, 1854; Emily; 1857; and Hermosita, 1859.  He also exhibited at The British Institute.

Of him it was written that he was "heavily influenced by the emerging aesthetic movement, and his interest was primarily in the juxtaposition and interrelationship of colours." (Christie's)

In 1865, Bouvier became a member of the New Watercolour Society.  He did a series of drawings of Queens of England, which were engraved.

He died at the age of 54.
