Emile Signol Wall Art

Émile Signol (1804 – 1892) was a French artist who painted genre works, portraits, and history paintings. He studied under Gros and Blondel. Although he lived during the Romantic period, he was hostile to Romanticism and espoused an austere neoclassicism. Signol made his Salon debut with “Joseph Recounting His Dream to His Brothers,” a painting which he did in 1824. In 1828, Signol had won the Grand Prix de Rome prize for the competition's painting category with his painting of Titulus Crucis. During his stay upon his winning, he painted a portrait of Hector Berlioz at Villa Medici.

In 1840, he was commissioned to decorate the churches of Saint Eustace, Saint Roch, Saint Augustin and Saint Sévérin. This was after he had had painted a stunning work depicting The Death of Saphira for the Church of the Madeleine. He spent several years and many hours developing and practicing his technique. In 1841, he was made a Knight of the Legion of Honor, and was made an Officer in 1865. Four of Signol’s paintings are at the Saint-Sulpice church in Paris. Signol has several pieces of artwork to his name and his pieces of artwork have been widely sold to a number of individuals and companies. Because of the high demand for his creative pieces, several galleries stock her ready to mount artwork, while others also avail them in a variety of other finishing options. Signol was strongly influenced by the graphic forms and bold colors unique to France where he grew up.
