Movement(s): –

Charles Francois Pecrus (1826 – 1907) was born in Limoges (Centre of France) and had to work at an early age. But his drawing talents were quickly discovered and he moved to Paris to study art.

His eye for details made him popular. Napoleon III even bought one of his paintings. His immediate neighbour and later very close friend was Eugene Boudin. Pecrus also became acquainted with Jongkind and Alfred Stevens.

At first Pecrus painted entirely interior and genre scenes in the style of Louis XIII.
