Frere, Pierre

Frere, Pierre IJdouard (1819-86), a French genre painter, was born at Paris, where he studied under Delaroche. He made his debut at the Salon of 1843, and afterwards frequently exhibited in England. In his earlier days he painted artisan interiors, but he is chiefly known by his renderings of child-life. Mr. Ruskin warmly commended him.
