Life of CLAUDIUS JACQUAND


 Advertisements

 
  French painter, designer and printmaker. In 1821 he entered the atelier of Fleury Richard in the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Lyon. He exhibited for the first time at the Lyon Salon of 1822, in 1824 receiving a first-class medal at the Paris Salon for a Prison Courtyard (untraced). He lived in Lyon until his mother’s death in 1836, when he settled in Paris.
  During the 1830s his pictures sold well: Louis-Philippe bought seven paintings for Versailles, and commissioned cartoons of the Death of the Duc d’Orlans (1847) for the stained-glass windows of the Chapelle St Ferdinand at Dreux. Although the fall of Louis-Philippe in 1848 deprived Jacquand of official commissions, financial mismanagement of the family polish factory obliged him to earn his living from painting. Between 1852 and 1855 he lived in Boulogne-sur-Mer where he decorated the Salle d’honneur in the Hôtel de Ville. He also obtained the commission for several paintings (1852-54) for Notre-Dame, Roubaix. Government commissions gradually returned: he was asked to decorate the chapel of the Virgin in St Philippe du Roule, Paris (1858-60), and the chapel of St Bernard, St Bernard de la Chapelle, Paris (1867). Jacquand also painted the archivolt of the chapel of the Virgin, St Martin d’Ainay, Lyon (1863).
  He was a frequent exhibitor at the Paris Salon until the year before his death, specialising in anecdotal historical scenes.
