Jean-Baptiste Lallemand (1716-1803)
He was born of a tailor father who did not appreciate that his son spent all his free time drawing and painting.
It was while working as a tailor in Paris that Jean-Baptiste met a person who wanted to buy four paintings to decorate his country house
The case was heard and the four seasons chosen for subject. Generously paid, this trial was for him the omen of greater success. His reputation is growing very fast.
After a stay in England, where he did good business, he returned to France to Dijon, within his family, then left for Rome in 1747 where he realized various works for the Vatican. Several cardinals, full of esteem for his talents, also employed him. He nevertheless returned to France to settle in Paris, where he was a member of the Academy of Saint-Luc in 1751. (He took part in the exhibitions of the Academy in 1751 and 1764). He exhibited at the Coliseum in 1776, the exhibition of youth, the place Dauphine in 1783 and the correspondence lounge in 1786.
His two works he did for his reception at the academy were welcomed with unanimous satisfaction. The monks of St. Martin near Autun asked him for six large paintings to decorate their refectory. These pieces, worthy of the greatest eulogy, have become, since the Revolution, the property of private individuals.
Lallemand painted all genres, but he excelled especially in landscapes and marine life. A fertile landscape painter, he sometimes made some genre scenes.
