A Tribute to André Vignoles

August 22nd, 2017|Comments Off on A Tribute to André Vignoles

It saddens us to announce the death of our member and friend, André Vignoles, died on July 15 2017. Faithful member of the Salon d’Automne since 1948, he served it with his great loyalty, during many years, until he became the dean of our Board of directors. André Vignoles' painting is clear, cheerful, delicate, but also wide and structured at the same time, as exact representation of himself. A tribute will be returned to him during the 2018 Salon d’Automne.   The artist in front of his work, La neige fondante aux trois pies Landscape   Les blés à Montfort l'Amaury
