Known as Claude de Nancy, Claudot was born in Badonvillier in the Vosges region of France in 1733. He was friends with the fellow artists Jean Girardet and Joseph Vernet but never moved to Paris to set up a studio there as he enjoyed the sunshine and lifestyle of his native south and was based in Nancy, eventually dying there on 27th December 1805.



He painted still-life, landscapes and capriccio classical ruins as well as a few mythological and biblical subjects such as "St Sebastian in the house of Irene" and "Jacob's Ladder". He is best known for the Italianate landscapes and these make up the majority of the paintings by him which are held in the collection of the Museum at Nancy
