Jean-Baptiste Claudot (b.1733 - d.1805) studied under Jean Girardet and Charles Joly whilst working under their direction on the château de Malgrande and also on the salle de la Comédie in Nancy. He went to Paris in 1766 to finish his studies and joined the studio of Joseph Vernet with whom he became friends and stayed until 1769 when he left for Nancy. These three years in Paris were incredibly important for Claudot who was influenced by Vernet's Italianate landscapes and marine paintings with their wonderful rendering of early evening light. Although he painted religious subjects and still-lives it was for his landscape painting that earned him renown in his lifetime and after.
