Alfred Chagniot, Deceased French Impressionist (1905-1991).


ALFRED CHAGNIOT was born in Paris, France in 1905.  Chagniot attended the Ecole des Beaux Arts. He was a follower of the post-impressionistic school, and a student of Montezin and Vuillaume. Chagniot was known for his landscapes and seascapes of France, and took painting excursions to Greece, Italy, and Spain.  His work shows the light color palette and broken brush technique of Impressionism.  A teacher by profession, Chagniot taught drawing at the Technical Institute.

Chagniot’s paintings were shown at the Salon des Independants, Salon d’Hiver, at the Art Libre, the Ecole Francais, in Asnieres, Mantes, and Colombes, among others. His paintings have been on permanent exhibition with ARNOT Gallery in New York for over twenty-five years of his painting career and continue to be part of the gallery collection to date.

Among the numerous honors and medals the artist has received, the most important are: the Medal “Arts-Sciences-Lettres,” the Merite Artistique, the Silver Medal of the Municipality of Paris, a distinction of the Society “Paysagistes Francais,” the Fernand Renaud Prize, and major prizes of Asnieres,  Mantes, and other cities.  In 1957 he won a gold medal in an international exhibition. He was an Honourable Member of the jury and committees of the Salon “Artistes Francais” and the Salon”Paysagistes Francais”.  Chagniot organized an art league of French artists that sold to Japan and was the liason to Japan for this group.

In 1982 he had a one man exhibition in Paris at Rue de Miro-mesnil.

Alfred Chagniot died in 1991.
