Alexandre Jacques Chantron (1857-1924) was a French painter known for his academic and history paintings, often depicting mythological or allegorical scenes. He was a student of William-Adolphe Bouguereau and Tony Robert-Fleury at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and his work was heavily influenced by their neoclassical style. Chantron's paintings are characterized by their attention to detail, use of rich colors, and idealized figures. He often depicted beautiful women in flowing robes, set against lavish backdrops. His work was popular during his lifetime, and he won numerous awards, including a médaille d'or at the Exposition Universelle of 1900.
