Louis Remy Mignot (1831 - 1870)
Louis Remy Mignot is associated with the Hudson River School of landscape painters though he also produced paintings from regions far removed from the American northwest.
He was a native of Charleston, South Carolina. He studied in the Netherlands beginning in 1850 at the Hague. He stayed in the Netherlands for three years.
When Remy returned to the United States, he settled in New York and began painting landscapes for which reason he is often described as a Hudson River School painter. However, Louis Remy Mignot was also a world-traveler and was soon in South America, producing paintings in Panama and Ecuador.
Remy's South American landscapes where very well-received. He continued to work at painting the northeast at the same time and to collaborate with other artists. John Ehniger and Eastman Johnson both called upon Remy to furnish the backgrounds for their figurative works.
Remy moved to London during the American Civil War and continued his work and was respected in his time. Tragically, he was accidentally imprisoned during the siege of Paris during the Franco Prussian War. Though he was released later, he died of smallpox upon returning to England. It is believed he contracted the disease while being held prisoner.
