Biography from Canvas:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Adrien originally started his formal education studying law but then switched to painting, especially landscapes. He began studying with Emile Breton when he was a teenager. In 1871 he met and began studying with Corot and later moved to Paris where he worked in the studio of Joseph Blanco. Adrien married Virginie Demont-Breton (1859-1935) in 1880. The newlyweds moved to Montgeron (suburb of Paris) and designed a home with two ateliers, one for his wife and one for himself. In 1881 they discovered the North coast fishing village of Wissant and built a Neo Egyptian villa summer home called "Typhonium" in 1891.

His wife won numerous national awards as a painter and was the president of the Union of Female Painters and Sculptors. Her father Jules Breton (1827-1906) and uncle Emile Breton (1831-1902) were both famous and successful painters as well.

Mr. Demont was a tall, hardworking man of action who talked like a poet. He had a successful career with multiple one-man exhibitions, inclusions in the Paris Salon, Columbian Exposition and more. During his lifetime, his paintings hung in multiple international museums including the Metropolitan Museum in NY.

One art critic described Demont's paintings as a "poem in pigment."
