Bernard Louis Borione was a painter of religious figure genre* and interior scenes.  He was born in Paris in 1865.  He was a pupil of his father,  Guillaume-Marie Borione (1816-1887) a French genre and portrait painter, and of his mother, the artist Evariste Luminais 1822-1896, a historical and genre painter.
Borione was part of a group of painters that depicted domestic antics of members of the higher echelons of the Roman Catholic Church, especially Cardinals in elegant dress and sumptuous surroundings, and his paintings proved fascinating to many members of the French citizenry.  Borione exhibited his paintings at the Salon des Artistes Francais.
