Prinet exerts a spiritual talent, holding a distinguished place in Parisian society. He is noted for his bourgeois interiors and his portraits (families Saglio and Desgranges for example). His home region, Franche-Comté , as well as the Normandy coast where his residence the "Double Six" is located in Cabourg , inspire him landscapes with soft tones. He performs some remarkable history paintings such as Adoration of the Magi at St. Ferjeux Basilica in Besançon . The painter also faced the decoration. In this area, he is responsible for The Little Quadrille at the Paris Opera Library, a decoration at the National Museum of Modern Art in Paris, and another at the Palace of the Legion of Honor in Paris.
