The landscape, when approached by this contemporary “impressionist”, is alive with the same light and atmosphere which has distinguished the “School of Paris” for nearly a century.
Available Paintings



December 11, 1956, Normandy

Daniel Pignot was born near Caen, the capital of Normandy. He continues to live in the region but now calls the beautiful 12th century port of Honfleur his home. The vast majority of his paintings are of this area . Painting on-the -spot it would only be natural to present his own environ first, but he has visited and produced wonderful canvases of Holland, Venice, Paris and the south of France. It is unique to find a contemporary impressionist with such a sense of atmosphere and light. As a plein air painter he is certainly set apart from his peers.
