Life of JEAN-BAPTISTE OUDRY


 Advertisements

 
  French painter, tapestry designer, and illustrator. He was a pupil of Largillire and painted some portraits, but he is renowned chiefly as one of the outstanding animal painters of the 18th century. With Desportes he was the foremost exponent of hunting scenes and still-life with dead game. Some of his best work was done as a tapestry designer, and he was head of the Beauvais and Gobelins factories from 1734 and 1736 respectively. He also did book illustrations, notably for an edition of La Fontaine s Fables (1755). His son Jacques-Charles (1720-78), a flower and animal painter, sometimes collaborated with him.
