Jules Tavernier

(Paris, France, 1844 - 1889, Honolulu, HI)

Born in Paris, Tavernier sailed for America in 1872, and in 1873 took off on horseback across the continent as an illustrator for <i>Harper-€™s Weekly</i>. Arriving in San Francisco he became an active member of the San Francisco Art Association and the Bohemian Club. While on a sketching trip to Monterey, he decided to settle there in what was, at that time, a rough and tumble coastal settlement. The studio he built became a destination for his San Francisco artist friends who enjoyed what they called the bohemian spirit of Monterey. For four years Tavernier led the first bloom of Monterey as an art colony. When he departed so did those early artists, and Monterey-€™s creative liveliness would not reoccur for several decades.
