Biography   Francois Bonvin


François Bonvin is one of the most interesting painters of the 19th century.  Bonvin had a very difficult childhood; he lost his mother when he was only 4 years old.  With very few means, he began drawing at École-de-Médecine, where they offered him free classes.  After having been there for two years, financial difficulties forced him to begin working.  He found employment with the police force.  However, he continued to draw and spent all his free time at the Parisian museums, in particular, the Louvre.  During the evenings he went to Gobelin's studio and later to the Académie Suisse.
