Paul Chaigneau was a painter of dramatic images of shepherds and their flocks on the plains of northern France. Influenced by the iconic peasant figures in the work of Millet and Jules Breton, Chaigneau often painted his flocks in the extreme ends of the day, grazing under glowing sunrises and sunsets. His works are often confused with those of Jean Ferdinand Chaigneau, and there is likely a familial relationship between the two artists given the close affinities of their subjects and style.
