Pierre-Etienne Lesueur

active in Paris 1790–1810

Pierre-Etienne Lesueur is mentioned as being a pupil of the landscape painter, Jean Pillement, and a member of Jacques Louis David’s entourage. He participated in Salon exhibitions between 1791 and 1810 and was a member of the Société républicaine des arts. Following in David’s footsteps, he also endeavoured to bring about a clothing reform that was of programmatic significance for the revolutionary leaders.
