Henri Vignet Paintings

1857 - 1920

Henri Vignet (1857-1920) was a French artist who was born in Rouen. He is known for his landscape paintings, which often featured views of the French countryside and the Normandy coast.

Vignet studied art in Paris, where he was influenced by the Barbizon School and the Impressionists. He was particularly interested in the effects of light and atmosphere in his paintings, and his work reflects the Impressionist emphasis on capturing the fleeting qualities of nature.

Vignet’s paintings are characterized by their loose brushwork and soft, atmospheric effects. He often painted en plein air, or outdoors, and his work reflects a keen observation of the natural world.

Vignet exhibited his work at a number of important exhibitions, including the Salon des Indépendants and the Salon d’Automne in Paris. He was also a member of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts, one of the most prestigious artistic organizations in France at the time.

Today, Vignet’s work is highly regarded for its sensitivity to the effects of light and atmosphere, and for its depiction of the French landscape. His paintings can be found in the collections of museums and private collectors around the world.
