Victor Alfred Paul Vignon, born in 1847 in Villers-Cotterets, Aisne, died and was buried in Meulan, Yvelines in 1909. He was an impressionist landscape painter and writer. Of him it was said that his work was more popular with collectors than with art critics.

Victor Vignon came from a wealthy background. His mother was the sculptor Marie-Cadiot Naomi.  He was a
student of Tonalist painter, Camille Corot , and worked in Clamart, Bougival and then La Celle-Saint-Cloud where he painted Saulaie at Bougival (1877), the Way of the Plain Bougival and Road Jonchère in La Celle-Saint-Cloud .

He then moved to Pontoise and Jouy-le-Comte. From 1878-1880, he was in Auvers-sur-Oise in the company of Camille Pissarro, Armond Guillaumin and Paul Cézanne.  There he painted subjects similar to theirs such as Path Chaponval (1881), Côte Saint-Nicolas in Auvers (1882) and Hovels in Auvers (1883).

He then moved to Nesles-la-Vallée in Eragny and the Isle-Adam with Jean-Baptiste Corot. Vignon is closely linked with Theo and Vincent Van Gogh, Dr. Paul Gachet, and pastry-writer-and painter Eugène Murer. He was also a friend of Frederick Samuel Cordey and Auguste Renoir .

Vignon has never experienced the success of other Impressionists. In 1900 thanks to Dr. Viau one of his paintings was in the Universal Exhibition of 1900. In 1903, an exhibition was organized to help him. Auguste Renoir advised Durand-Ruel in making selections.
