Born in Charleston, South Carolina, Mignot studied painting in the Netherlands and began his professional career at the Hudson River School. He is most celebrated for his delicate use of both color and the atmospheric depiction of space. His paintings mixed the real and fantastic elements of his life into ethereal visions. His experimentation with composite landscapes and atmospheric technique showcased a mysterious and dramatic force present in his works. Mignot painted in the Andes, alongside Frederic Church, who he was held up to as an equal. In 1996, Mignot came to the forefront of the art world when the North Carolina Museum of Art exhibited a major retrospective of his work. Mignot was a part of the admissions committee of the Century Association, was elected an Academician of the National Academy of Design, and helped form the Artists' Fund Society.
