 Angrand was an impressionist painter of early 1880’s and his art works depicted day to day rural life and other scenes. His style of painting showed broken brushstrokes along with light-filled coloration. This reflected the influence of other notable artists such as Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro and Jules Bastein- Lepage. Later his art style evolved in Neo-impressionism. He later joined Seurat in the plein air painting on La Grande Jatte Island. He became friends with Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Signac, Georges Seurat, Maximilien Luce and Henri-Edmond Cross.

This French artist was known for art movements such as Impressionism, neo-impressionism and pointillism
