Lucien Mignon ( - )

Painter of genre, still life and draughtsman. Lucien Mignon studied at the Beaux-Arts d'Angers, then at the Beaux-Arts in Paris with Jean-Léon Gérôme. At the beginning of his career, Mignon befriended Renoir with whom he worked in Cagnes. He was very impressed by Renoir's talent and his style was influenced by it. He won the Prix Berton in 1920, and also created decorations for the Ministry of Public Works. From 1910, Mignon exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants and the Société Nationale des Beaux Arts. His ambition was to combine the rigour of Ingres with the impressionist background. Lucien Mignon is part of the Musée d'Orsay collections.
