Roger Chapelet

French, 1903-1995

Roger Chapelet was in love with the sea. Young, adventurous, eager to learn and to see, he embarked on several sailing ships, including the famous codfish tall ships of St-Malo in Brittany. Chapelet crossed the North Atlantic numerous times to Greenland and Newfoundland. In 1936, he was awarded the appointment of "Peintre de la Marine" by the French Cultural Ministry, upon recommendation of the Governors of the cultural board of the French Navy. From 1939–49, he served in the French Navy and the Merchant Navy. Since 1946, Chapelet devoted his full time to his artistic career with regular sailing voyages, including quite a few on the "Sagres" which represented the Portuguese Navy at the Bicentennial parade of tall ships in New York. The artist is an accomplished sailor, who loves and respects everything which belongs to the sea. Tall ships in particular. His paintings reflect his experience and his feelings. The artist is in full control of his talent to create a balanced and harmonious composition. Color, light and motion are Chapelet's forte. Through soft, tender, yet vibrant colors, the artist shows his French heritage. He expresses his feelings in elegant simplicity, yet with a definite maritime character.
