He entered the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1848, where he was a student of Léon Cogniet and Adolphe Yvon. He was a member of the Paris Salon from 1848 to 1882, winning medals in 1865 and 1867. François Feyen-Perrin was for many years one of the favorite painters of the general public, his paintings caused a sensation at the Salon. He was, with his brother Jacques Eugène Feyen, the painter of record for the fishermen of Cancale. His constant concern to embellish his subjects reveals what is often artificial in his art, particularly in a register that would be realistic when his female characters are obviously too elegant to have ever engaged in the rough work of the sea.
It can be seen then that his work was not limited to the folklore of Cancale and its inhabitants, but that he was, as for the diversity of the themes, a complete painter; some paintings refer to history: Discovery of the body of Charles the Bold after the battle of Nancy, to religious history..: The Descent of the Cross, to mythology: The Caron Boat, to allegory: The Elegy, to various facts: Episode of the Evening Star shipwreck, to literary history: Prodigality of the Aretina, to the celebration of female beauty: Naked woman lying on a beach.
