Armand Charnay Painting

Armand Charnay - Oil on canvas - 13.75 X 10  (framed)
(French 1844 - 1916) 


A very popular artist, Charnay was born in Charlieu in the Loire, and moved to Paris in around 1865. He studied briefly in the studios of Feyen-Perrin and Pils, but was mainly self-taught, painting from nature and copying works by Claude, Poussin and Daubigny. He exhibited at the Salon in 1865. From 1871 he painted increasingly in the Forest of Fontainebleau. A painter and etcher of landscapes, he specialized in the depiction of old châteaux and their surrounding parks. Several of his pieces are now in the Armand Charnay Museum in Charlieu France.
