Life of JACQUES-JEAN-BAPTISTE AUGUSTIN


 Advertisements

 
  French painter. After receiving instruction in art from Jean Girardet (170978) and Jean-Baptiste-Charles Claudot (17331805), he went to Paris in 1781, where he won recognition as a miniature painter. The miniatures he painted in the 1790s, for example his portrait of Mme Vanhe, ne Dewinck (1792; Paris, Louvre), are among his most animated works; often portraying figures in a landscape setting, they develop the exuberant style of Niclas Lafrensen and Peter Adolf Hall. He also admired the work of Jean-Baptiste Greuze, whose Bacchante (Waddesdon Manor, Bucks, NT) in his own collection he copied in miniature (London, Wallace) and in enamel (Paris, Louvre).
