Claude François Théodore Caruelle d''Aligny, a French landscape-painter, was born at Chaumes (Nièvre) in 1798. He went to Paris in 1808, studied painting under Regnault and Watelet, and made his debut in 1822 with an historical landscape on the subject of ''Daphnis and Chloe;'' and this style of art, now much neglected, he constantly followed. He obtained a medal of the first class in 1837, and the decoration of the Legion of Honour in 1842. His ''View of Genazzano. Environs of Rome,'' and ''View of Royat, France,'' were sent by the French Government to the International Exhibition of 1862. Aligny died at Lyons in 1871, while holding the post of Director of the École des Beaux-Arts. Among his most important works may be cited: Amiens. Museum. The Good Samaritan. 1834. •Besançon. Museum.
