|Perronneau, Jean-Baptiste, a French painter and engraver. He worked mainly as a portraitist and mainly in pastel. In this medium he was overshadowed in his lifetime by Maurice Quentin de La Tour, whose style was more vivacious, but posterity has judged the more sober but more penetrating Perronneau to be at least his equal. From about 1755 he led a wandering life, visiting England, the Netherlands several times (he died in Amsterdam), Italy, Poland, and Russia. He was a prolific artist and is represented in many galleries in France and elsewhere.
