Artist. He went to England when quite young, and entered the Schools of the Academy in 1796. His first picture, 'Banditti at their Repast,' appeared in 1800, shortly followed by ‘A Landscape' and ‘Fortune Telling.' Chalon's early practice was in oils, but in 1806 he began to exhibit at the gallery of the Water-colour Society, and in 1808 became a member of that body. Also in 1808, he, his brother Alfred Edward Chalon, and some friends, founded the Sketching Society. In 1816 he exhibited an important work at the Royal Academy, ‘Napoleon on board the Bellerophon,' which he presented to Greenwich Hospital. This was followed by a fine painting, ‘A View of Hastings,' which is now in the South Kensington Museum. In 1827 he was elected associate of the Royal Academy, and became a full member in 1841. Among his later works ‘Gil Blas in the Robbers' Cave,' 1843, and the ‘Arrival of the Steam-packet at Folkestone,' 1844. In 1847 he was stricken with paralysis, and died after a long illness on November 14, 1854.
