Jean-Jaques Lequeu

Annotate & Collect
Jean-Jacques Lequeu (1757-1825) worked as a draughtsman at Rouen, and from 1779 in Paris at the Cadastre, the Ecole Polytechnique, and the Interior Ministry. He created two treatises: Architecture Civile and Nouvelle Méthode Appliquée aux Principes Élémentaires du Dessin, both donated to the Bibliothèque Royale (now Nationale) in July 1825. Lequeu submitted his work for exhibition in the Salons, but was always rejected. He later tried to sell his work by way of advertisements in Paris journals, but also these efforts were largely unsuccessful. Despite the lack of acceptance among his contemporaries, Lequeu is today considered an exceptional architectural visionary of post-revolutionary France together with Claude-Nicolas Ledoux, Étienne-Louis Boullée and Antoine Laurent Thomas Vaudoyer.
