Aimé Barraud (1902 - 1954)

"The Watercolourist"

Aimé Barraud was the younger brother of Francois Emile Barraud (seen previously on Art Inconnu here and here.) One of seven siblings (six brothers and a sister) Aimé Barraud grew up in an artistic environment, the son of clock engravers. Like several of his brothers he studied art locally in Switzerland and later visited Paris regularly where he enjoyed minor success as a painter. He died in 1954 in Neuenburg, Switzerland.
