François-Emile Barraud (24 November 1899, La Chaux-de-Fonds – 11 September 1934, Geneva), Swiss painter. He was the second eldest of four brothers - François, Aimé, Aurèle, and Charles - who all painted or sculpted at various points in their lives. All were largely self-taught artists having been raised as professional plasterers and house painters, though in their youth they attended evening classes at the local art school. In 1919, François exhibited paintings in La Chaux-de-Fonds and also participated in the National Exhibition of Fine Arts in Basel. Encouraged by the success of the exhibitions he left Switzerland in 1922, and moved to Reims in France where he worked as a house painter for two years. He married a French woman in 1924; his wife Marie subsequently featured as a model in several of his paintings. That same year or the next, he found work in Paris as an artist and craftsman, while studying at the École du Louvre. He suffered long periods of illness throughout his life and died of tuberculosis in Geneva in 1934, two months before his thirty-fifth birthday.
