Biography from The Caldwell Gallery:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Foreau studied under the Academic painters Jules Lefebvre and Luc-Olivier Merson; however, it was under the influence of his friend and Barbizon master Henri Harpignies that he became a "plein-air" artist. From 1888 to 1938, Foreau exhibited each year in Paris as a member of the "Salon des Artistes Fransais" and won a number of medals and prizes. He won the Bronze Medal at the 1900 World fair. He was the President of the Association of French Landscape Painters and in 1911, Foreau received the coveted title of Knight of the Legion of Honor. His work shows the influences of Impressionism, Symbolism and the Barbizon School, especially Corot.
