He studied art at L'Ecole de Beaux-Arts and was a pupil of Isidore Alexandre Augustin Pils (1813-1875), the master of many acclaimed French artists.

He exhibited at the Salon again in 1882, with three works: "Surprise", "Le Marche aux fleurs" and "La Petite Bohemienne", and at the Salons of 1883 and 1886 with "Parmi les Rochers" and "Sur la Terrasse". At the 1886 Paris Salon, he was awarded a medal for "La Seance Interrompue". He also exhibited at the Salons of 1890 and 1897. All of Ballavoine's exhibitions received critical acclaim and with it came prosperity. Whilst initially he found success with his small street scenes of Paris, he became best known for his delicate and exquisitely painted portraits of young women often depicted in landscapes. Examples of his works can be found in many private collections, art galleries and museums in Europe and the US.

was born in Exmouth, England in 1824. The son of a cobbler, Beavis resisted his father's attempts to bring him up in his own trade and instead passed his time scribbling all over the white-washed walls of the house. He cleverly sketched horses, dogs, cows, sheep and other sundry objects of everyday life - a pastime that caused many quarrels in the house. Encouraged by his friends, he moved to London in 1846 and enrolled as a student at the Government School of Design at Somerset House, which housed the Royal Academy and the Society of Antiquaries.
In 1850 he became designer to Messrs Trollope, a firm of decorators, and with him as designer the firm competed successfully for three international competitions. It was with these designs that he first exhibited works at the Royal Academy.
However, Beavis' aspirations did not stop there. In his spare time, he worked with both oils and watercolours. After exhibiting several times at the British Institution he obtained admission in 1862 to the Royal Academy with two pictures: A Mountain Rill and Fishermen Picking Up Wreck At Sea. The artistic and financial success of these works was sufficient to justify devoting himself purely to artistic production and he became a regular contributor to the exhibitions.
Beavis took little time to create his reputation, becoming a national sensation quickly. His watercolours and oils alike found constant favour with the public and from 1852 to 1896 he successfully exhibited at the Royal Academy, winning prizes for a variety of subjects. He favoured painting landscapes of Bretagne and the forest of Fontainebleau inspired by his French contemporaries in the Barbizon school.
He exhibited over three hundred works in the principal London exhibitions, and some of these works can still be seen in various museums and art galleries - at Glasgow, Sheffield, Sunderland, Melbourne and the Victoria & Albert.
Beer, Andrew (1862-1954)
Painter in oil & watercolours of landscapes, coastal scenes & bird studies, he was also an illustrator & postcard artist. He was born in Exmouth & first worked as an illustrator in the art dept of Harvey Barton & Co. Bristol. His most collected work are his portrait studies of racing pigeons painted in the early 20th century. He was a racinging pigeon enthusiast & active judge at many shows. Pigeons were went by rail to Bristol for him to paint & the finished pictures were often offered as prizes at the shows.
Bell, Lilian (ex.1899-1933)
Landscape painter who lived at Wallasey, Cheshire, and London, & exhibited 57 works at the Walker Galleries, Liverpool.
Bellman, John Joseph (b. 1949)
Irish artist John Joseph Bellman was born on the 14th February 1949 in South London. Of Anglo Irish parentage, his father was typical of his generation and worried about Ken’s artistic temperament which he viewed as effeminate. As a result Ken took up boxing and won a gold medal for South London in his teens. His art continued to flourish with his trademark striking use of colour. His main medium is oils and he favours romantic subjects of Edwardian times.
John Joseph Bellman has travelled extensively and spent two years working for major galleries in New York. The Royal Academy nominated him in 1976 as being one of the few promising young artists to emerge this century: “John Joseph Bellman has considerable talent, any painting purchased now can only be seen as a sound long term investment."
John Joseph Bellman work now hangs in many important collections and has had paintings exhibited at The Royal Academy (London), The Beau (Paris) and the Kline Galleries (Canada). John's work has also been exhibited in Frost and Read, Bourne Gallery, Hollywood Road Gallery, Thompson's Gallery, Gallery Kaleidoscope, David Messum's Gallery, John Davies in Stowe-on-the-Would, Duncan Miller London and American Connection. More recently exhibited at the Arts Club, 40 Dover Street, Mayfair, London.
