LAJOUE Jacques de (b. 1686, Paris, d. 1761, Paris) Nationality : French

French painter, the son of the architect and master mason Jacques de La Joue and Marguerite Cannaban. He was accepted by the Academie Royale as an architectural painter on 26 April 1721 and he continued to take part in its exhibitions until 1753. He exhibited at the Place Dauphine in 1721 and his success never seems to have waned from this date onwards. He obtained work in several decorative projects in royal palaces and buildings. In 1732, he won great acclaim with a View of the Bibliotheque Ste-Genevieve. From 1730 to 1739, he provided drawings to Charles Nicolas Cochin II to be used for engravings. Lajoue was patronised, in particular, by Mme de Pompadour.
