Bernard Louis Borione
Bernard Louis Borione is a French visual artist who was born in 1865. He was a pupil of his father and the artist Evariste Luminais and he specialised in painting genre subjects and interiors. The domestic antics of members of the higher echelons of the Roman Catholic Church exercised a powerful fascination for a number of popular painters and their patrons in the second half of the nineteenth century and in this Borione was no exception. As we can see here, these intimate portrayals of the life of the clergy are at once amusing and full of character but also highly skilful in execution. The use of Episcopal purple or crimson enhances the artist's palette and adds richness to an already sumptuous interior.
