MIGNOT, Louis Remy, painter, born in Charleston, South Carolina, in 1831; died in Brighton, England, in September, 1870. He was the son of a Baltimore confectioner, studied art in Holland, opened a studio in New York city about 1855, and became known as a landscape-painter. He went with Frederick E. Church to South America, where he painted some tropical scenes. He was elected an associate member of the Academy of design in 1858, and an academician in 1859. When the civil war began, desiring neither to return to his native state nor to remain in the north, he emigrated to Europe, and settled in London in 1862. He made studies in Switzerland and other parts of Europe, and painted works that found recognition. Among his earlier pictures are "Twilight in the Tropics," "Southern Harvest," " Tropical Scenery," and "Source of the Susquehanna," which was exhibited at the Paris exposition of 1867. He also painted "' Niagara," a view from the American side. He exhibited at the Royal academy in London "Lagoon of Guayaquil, South America" and "A Winter Morning" in 1863, "Evening in the Tropics" in 1865, " Under the Equator" in 1866, "Tin-tern" in 1867, and "Sunset off Hastings" in 1870. "Mount Chimborazo" was shown in 1871. After his death a collection of his paintings was placed on exhibition in London.
