Provenance: Hollywood Road Gallery, London, England.The gallery’s biography of Beauvais reads: Born in 1942, he came from a family of artists. He studied painting under his father, Arnold Beauvais (1886-1984), but was, for the most part, self-taught. After a variety of jobs, he turned to full-time painting in 1973; since then he had a number of successful one-man shows in London, Jersey, U.S.A., Mexico and Australia. He travels extensively, especially to France where he finds the inspiration for much of his work. His style is reminiscent of a by-gone era and his paintings are to be found in many major private collections worldwide. He lives with his family in the South-east of England.
