Ludovic Alleaume (1859-1941) | Academic painter




An excellent painter and draughtsman, Ludovic Alleaume worked in an academic style that owed little to the more avant-garde trends in contemporary French art🎨.
He exhibited regularly at the Salon🎨 des Artistes Français between 1883-1938, winning several prizes🎨 including a second prize in the category of lithography in 1896 and a second class medal for painting in 1905.
Alleaume also exhibited at the Salon des Humoristes and the Salon d'Hiver and, outside of Paris, took part in exhibitions in Angers, Nantes, Nice, Rouen and Toulouse, as well as London.
Born in Angers, France, Alleaume studied with Hérbert and Luc-Oliver Merson at l’École des Beaux-Arts in Paris.


He won many prizes including the Prix Bonnat and was awarded🎨 the Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur in 1927.
In 1890 Alleaume traveled to Palestine where he completed many drawings that comprise a suite of work. Alleaume collaborated with the Revue de Bretagne et d’Anjou. He also created illustrations for "Le Monde illustré".
Alleaume is represented in the Musée de Beaux-Arts de Rennes.
