Paul-Marc-Joseph Chenavard (9 December 1808 – 1895) was a French painter.

...   Paul-Marc-Joseph Chenavard (9 December 1808 – 1895) was a French painter.

Entering the École des beaux-arts en 1825, he studied in the studio of Ingres alongside his friend Joseph Guichard, then in the studios of Hersent and Delacroix.
The influence of German philosophy and painting led him to believe that art's aim had to be humanitarian and civilising.
He died in Paris in 1895 and was buried in the new Cimetière de Loyasse at Lyon.
