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

Antoine Ponchin was born in Marseilles (Bouches-du-Rhone) but received his artistic training in Paris where he studied under Jules Gagliardini and Fernand Humbert.  The artist Jean Baptiste Olive also gave advice and encouragement to Ponchin.

It was in Paris where Ponchin exhibited his works with the Salon des Artistes Francais. In 1904 his Salon entry received an honorable mention; in 1906 he earned a third-place medal; and in 1910 he was awarded a second-place medal.  He later received the Legion d'Honneur for his accomplishments in painting landscapes and marine works.

Ponchin's primary subject matter included views of Provence, Venice, and smaller villages and orchards by the Mediterranean.  He also traveled as far as "Indochine", Tunisia, and Morocco to create his signature landscapes.  Ponchin's oeuvre represents a beautiful global survey of natural and manmade wonders.

Several museums in France feature works by Ponchin, including the Musee des Beaux Arts in Chambery and the Musee des Beaux Arts in Rouen.  In 1999, the Huntsville Museum in Alabama staged a retrospective featuring Ponchin's paintings alongside those of his father and son (also artists).
