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 Lie Perin-Salbreux (1753 Reims - 1817 ibidem) was the son of a cloth manufacturer in Reims, where he studied under Ganes, called Jean Clermont. At the age of 25 he went to Paris, where he became a student of Carles-Gabriel Lemmonier and Louis Sicardi and became friendly with Alexander Roslin, who is said to have advised him to specialise in miniature painting.

In fact, Perin excelled in this field, although he also did portraits in oils and in pastel. He exhibited at the Salon from 1793 to 1798 and seems to have rapidly gained success in Parisian aristocratic circles, a clientele he was forcibly deprived of by the Revolution. As in addition to that his personal fortune rapidly decreased because of the assignats. He returned to Reims in 1799 to take over the factory, which his father had left him. From that time, evidently, he painted less, but as soon as he could, he devoted himself to his much loved art and again produced a number of remarkable miniatures.

Schidlof writes "Perin is undoubtedly one of the greatest French miniaturists of the 18th century. Although he was a pupil of Sicardi, one finds no resemblance between the works of these two artists. On the other hand, Perin resembles Hall in an amazing way in some of his miniatures, in technique as well as in quality".
