This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Louis Blanchet was a French painter, active in Rome.  He won second place in the Prix de Rome competition in 1727 and thereafter settled in Rome, where he enjoyed the patronage of Nicolas Vleughels, Director of the Académie de France, and the Duc de Saint-Aignan (1684–1776), who at that time was French Ambassador to the Holy See.

In 1752 Blanchet painted the Vision of Constantine (Paris, Louvre), a copy of Giulio Romano’s fresco in the Sala di Costantino in the Vatican. He was, however, principally a portrait painter. His portrait of Tolozan de Montfort (1756; Lyon, Musée des Beaux-Arts) is a fine example of his elegant, rather nervous style and his distinctive use of colour.  In the same year Blanchet executed a portrait of the contemporary painter Johann Mandelberg (1730–86; Copenhagen, Kongelige Danske Kunstakademi).

 Other surviving works of his include St. Paul (signed and dated 1757; Avignon, Musée Calvet) and his full-length portrait of P. P. Lesueur and E. Jacquier (1772; Nantes, Musée des Beaux-Arts).

His last documented work was an allegory of Painting and Sculpture (1762; untraced). His work as a portrait painter has been compared with that of his Roman contemporary Pompeo Girolamo Batoni.
