Painter of portraits and genre scenes, decorator, lithographer and designer of stained-glass cartoons, Ludovic Alleaume is an academic artist who has remained faithful to the classical repertoire.
Born in Angers on March 24, 1859, he trained at the School of Fine Arts in his hometown and in Paris. And if he set up his studio in the capital in the Saint Germain district, he never stopped coming to Laval in the Dôme studio where he regularly collaborated in the design of the stained-glass windows of his brother Auguste (1854-1940).
Like his older brother, Ludovic developed a passion for drawing very early on. Encouraged by his parents, he studied at the Municipal School of Drawing in Angers with the artist Brunclair before taking up painting with decorative painters in his hometown. He creates sets for the Grand Théâtre in Angers and murals for castles, bourgeois residences and chapels in Anjou and Maine.
At almost 18, he moved to the capital and joined the École des Beaux-Arts where he became a pupil of Hébert, Luc-Oliver Merson and Boulanger.
It was from 1883 that Ludovic began his official career by entering the salon of the Society of French Artists. Exhibiting repeatedly from 1883 to 1938, he was awarded several times. He also enjoyed honors and success at the exhibitions of the Society of Lithograph Painters from 1894. His talents as an illustrator enabled him to collaborate with the Revue de Bretagne, the Revue de l'Anjou and the Monde Illustré. In 1934, he was vice-president of the salon committee in the engraving and lithography section.
Several times decorated for his painting; he obtained the Legion of Honor in 1927.
The artist died in Paris on January 14, 1941.
