Philibert-Alexandre-Ferdinand Bizard was born on September 29, 1820 in Semur-en-Auxois. His father, Jean-Baptiste Bizard (1796-1860), known as Bizard father, was a painter, born in Commarin; he works in Semur as a drawing teacher and lithographer draftsman. It was he who inculcated the notions of art history and the practice of drawing to his very young son. In 1838, a scholarship was awarded to the latter by the General Council of the Côte-d'Or to follow the courses of the School of Fine Arts in Dijon. Then he went to Paris in the studio of the painter Jean-Charles-Joseph Rémond, Grand Prix de Rome for historical landscape in 1821; it was this professor who presented him, because of his great abilities, on March 4, 1845, to the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris.

The young man will participate in the Salons of 1839, 1844, 1850-51, 1857, 1864, 1865 and 1867, as well as in the Dijon exhibitions in 1840, 1849 and 1858. In Semur, he succeeded, in 1862, Étienne Bouhot , at the head of the School of Drawing of the city.

Bizard Jr painted many oil or watercolor paintings, particularly landscapes of the region: Le Saut du Gouloux (1841), Interior of the Notre-Dame de Semur church, A fuller near Semur… He likes also to represent still lifes: Still life (1869), Interior of kitchen, Game, Strawberries and grapes, Attributes of music… The artist also executed portraits: Portrait of Van Dyck, Portrait of Buffon, after FH Drouais…
