Jean-Jacques Lequeu

Jean-Jacques Lequeu was born on 14th September 1757 in Rouen. He first studies in a free school of drawing and then specialises in architecture. At the same time, he carried out his first works in the service of various architects. In 1779, he left for Paris where he stopped his studies due to lack of means and support. On the death of his patrons, Lequeu found himself without a project and did not obtain the teaching post he wanted at the Rouen Academy. The Revolution opened up new prospects for him as an employee in a public workshop and then as a draughtsman in an office attached to the Ministry of the Interior. His complete work includes around 800 architectural drawings, figures and other portraits. Jean-Jacques Lequeu died on 28 March 1826 in Paris. 

Jean-Jacques Lequeu was a draughtsman considered as a failed architect but a genius artist. His famous works are "And we will be mothers too ; because.....!", "He is free" and "He pulls out the tang".

Jean-Jacques Lequeu was particularly linked to Claude Nicolas Ledoux, Johann Heinrich Füssli and Giovanni Battista Piranesi.
