Paul Chaigneau was especially adept painting pastoral scenes incorporating flocks of sheep. Troupeau de Moutons avec Berger highlights this specialty. In the scene, we find a flock being led by a shepherd and his dog; the setting sun highlights their movement home. Chaigneau includes iconic haystacks in the background, which are similarly set alight by the glowing sunset.
Paul Chaigneau was a 19th century French artist who specialized in landscapes and animal paintings. His work bears a striking resemblance to that of Jean Ferdinand Chaigneau, who was also a landscape and animal painter.
