Albert Pierre René Maignan (Beaumont-sur-Sarthe 14 October 1845 – 29 September 1908 Saint-Prix) was a French painter and historical illustrator. Most of his work was devoted to historical subjects, but he also painted portraits.
In 1864, at the age of 19, Maignan left his home to study law in Paris, where he graduated in 1866. During his studies, he devoted himself to his first love, painting.
He participated with other artists in the decoration of the Opera-Comique in Paris in 1898.
