Chantron was a pupil of Picot, T. Robert-Fleury and Bouguereau. Entered the Paris Salon in 1877 with a religious subject, gained an honorable Mention in 1893, exhibited Fleurs de primemps at the Salon in 1895. He was awarded a third class medal in 1899, and a second class medal in 1902. He primarily painted history paintings, portraits, still lives (flowers) and later on nudes in the manner of Bouguereau.
