    A student of François-Louis Français and of Corot, Louis-Aimé Japy made his Salon debut in 1864, during the height of the Barbizon movement. He made trips to Italy early in his career, as was customary for a young artist, but it was the regions of his native Doubs and the Jura that most captured his heart: these regions inspired most of his compositions. Japy exhibited his views of the French countryside regularly at the Salon, medalling in 1870, and earning a second class medal in 1873 and gold medals at both of the Expositions Universelles in 1889 and 1900. In 1883 he was made a member of the Société des Artistes Français, earning him exemption from all future Salon jury selection and the ability to exhibit freely at the Salons. He was recognized again in 1906, when he was elected Chevalier of the Légion d’Honneur.

    His works can be viewed in such cities as Budapest, Langres, Limoux, Manchester, Morlaix, Roanne, St-Etienne, Salford, Washington, D.C. and Amsterdam
