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

Jean Chapin was born on February 21, 1896 in Paris, France.  He studied at l’École Boulle.  He also attended l’Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris.

Chapin’s first paintings date to 1913, but this work was interrupted by World War I. Chapin exhibited in Paris between 1926 and 1955 when he retired.

He exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Indépendants and became member in 1919.  He also showed work at the Salon d’Automne, Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts, Salon des Tuileries, and Salon de la Marine.

Chapin’s style tends towards Expressionism; he uses bold colors and composition to bring his subject to the attention of the observer.  His brush strokes give his paintings a very modern and rich texture.

The date of his death is not known.
