Julien Louis Tavernier was born in 1879 in Paris. The artist worked in an Impressionist and modern style. He is known largely for his depictions of the nude, particularly women. He also executed a sketch for the municipal hall of rue Paul-Bert, Saint Mande, in 1921 which represents the Allegory to the Dead of the First World War. Tavernier was a student of Leon Bonnat and he exhibited at the Salon from 1908. The artist became a member of the Society of French Artists. In 1909, Tavernier obtained a medal of honor and a silver medal in 1925 accompanied by the Marie-Bashkirtseff prize. In 1931, the artist was awarded the Bonnat student association prize. Julien Tavernier died in Paris in 1938 at the age of 59.


Tavernier's works are in the collection of the National Museum of Visual Arts and the Musee des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris.
