Emile Noirot


Emile Noirot was a student of Louis Noirot, his father, then Francois Louis Francais, Charles Daubigny and Alexandre Cabanel. He studied at the Julian Academy and he also followed advice from Auguste Ravier. As well as his oil painting abilities he also used watercolours and produced pencil sketches.

He exhibited at the salon in Paris in 1874, then at the Salon of French Artists from 1889 on. He also exhibited in St. Petersburg, London, Brussels, Venice, Chicago, etc… He received medals at the Universal exhibition in 1889, 1891, 1893 and 1900. He was awarded “Chevalier de la Legion d’honneur” in 1902.

Noirot was a visionary and it is expressed through his paintings of maritime and seascape subjects in space and light. Some of his favourite subjects were the Loire valley, the mountains of the Auvergne or Savoy, the forest of Fontainbleau or colourful Mediterranean scenes or the sights of Italy.
