This biography from the Archives of AskART:
James Le Jeune was born in Canada in 1910 to a French father and Irish mother. He studied architecture at the Central London Polytechnic and also attended art classes at Heatherly's College.
 
During World War II, he spent time in the army and was posted to Italy and Tunisia where he worked with Bailey Bridges and also did a lot of sketching and water colours.

In 1950 he moved to Ireland with his family and lived in Delgany County, Wicklow. He worked as an architect for a couple of years then gave it up deciding to paint full time.

From 1964 to 1969 Le Jeune had a studio in New York City where he worked part of the year and traveled back and forth between there and Dublin, Ireland where he also now lived and painted in his studio in Baggot Lane.

James, or Jimmy as he was known had a sensitivity and could convey a persons feelings or soul in a very simple and natural way in his portraits. He was also a very accomplished painter of Land, City and Seascapes, being particularly good at crowd scenes, mainly of Ireland. 
 
He was a member of Royal Hibernian Academy where he exhibited regularly.
 
He died in 1983 in Dublin where he was well loved for his slightly eccentric and witty persona.
