Here’s another photo from my collection, of landscape painter Frank Peyraud at his easel. This photo is from 1946; it accompanied a newspaper article about him that said, among other things, that Peyraud was disappointed by Chicago when he came here from Switzerland in 1881–ten years after the Chicago fire.

Here is an example of his work.

Here’s a portrait of Peyraud by fellow P&C member Antonin Sterba.
