Charles-Amable Lenoir (22 October 1860 – 1926) was a French painter. Like his mentor, William-Adolphe Bouguereau, he was an academic painter and painted realistic portraits as well as mythological and religious scenes. His artistic career was so prestigious that he won the Prix de Rome twice and was awarded the Légion d’honneur.
Lenoir was born in Châtellaillon, a small town just outside La Rochelle. Lenoir made his artistic debut at the Salon in 1887 and continued to exhibit there until his death. In tribute to his lasting appeal, Lenoir was appointed a Chevalier de la Légion d’honneur in 1903. He kept a house in Fouras and returned every summer. He died there and was buried on 1 August 1926. In order to commemorate him, a monument was erected there in 1937 which stands to this day.
