French artist Edmund Petitjean was born in 1844 in Vosges and died August 7, 1925, in Paris. Throughout his lifetime he painted views of French rivers, towns, villages and ports on the Atlantic coast. He first exhibited in Paris in 1874 at the Salon des Artistes Français, of which he became a member in 1883. He was awarded an honourable mention in 1881, a first-class medal in 1884, a second-class in 1885, a silver at the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1889, and a gold at the Exposition Universelle of 1900. He was declared hors concours, and made a Chevalier of the Légion d'Honneur in 1892. Today his work is represented in many museums throughout France, including Le Musee D' Orsay in Paris.
