French painter. He was the son of a sculptor and entered the school of the French Academy in Paris in about 1775. He was taught by Antoine-François Callet and Antoine Renou (1731-1806). His work represents the complexity of the artistic movements at the turn of two centuries. He specialized in paintings of nymphs and bacchantes in landscapes, but he painted portraits too. He exhibited at the Salon between 1791 and 1827.
