Antoine Blanchard was born in France on November 15, 1910
in a small village near the banks of the Loire.  He was the eldest of three children and his father, a carver, managed a small carpentry and furniture shop.  Antoine would watch his father hand carve the furniture and began to display an artistic flair early in life - in an effort to promote this talent, his parents sent him to Blois for drawing lessons.  He continued his training in Rennes at the Ecole des Beaux-Art

Blanchard received his initial artistic training at the Beaux-Arts in Rennes, Brittany. He then moved to Paris in 1932 where he joined the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. He won the Prix de Rome.

Like Édouard Cortès (1882–1969) and Eugène Galien-Laloue (1854–1941), Antoine Blanchard essentially painted Paris and the Parisians in bygone days, often from vintage postcards. The artist began painting his Paris street scenes in the late 1950s, and like Cortès, often painted many times the same Paris landmark, in different weather conditions or various seasons. The most recurrent topics were views of the capital city in cloudy or rainy days, showing streets busy with pedestrians in a rush to go home and bright storefronts reflecting on wet streets.
Antoine Blanchard died in 1988
