Biography G. P. Chedanne

(b. Maromme, France 1861; d. 1940)

Born in Maromme, France, in 1861 Georges-Paul Chedanne studied with Juleien Guadet at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris where he won many distinctions and prizes, including the Grand Prix for his restoration drawings of the Roman Pantheon. As a result of his studies of the Pantheon in Rome, he was able to provide convincing evidence dating the Pantheon to the reign of Hadrian. This led to the discovery of the remains of Agrippa's Pantheon.

After his sojourn in Rome, Chedanne returned to Paris to practice independently. Although his designs were influenced by the Art Nouveau movement, his style remained highly eclectic and individualistic. His designs ranged from bare and undulating surfaces to severe glass and iron structures to massive masonry forms. In addition to the inspiration of ancient Rome, Chedanne drew upon the traditional motifs and materials of Parisian architecture.
