English: Alexandre Laemlein was a french painter, born at Hohenfeld, Bavaria, Dec. 9, 1813. He went to Paris in his 10th year, to live with his uncle Alexandre Laemlein, the author of a cyclopaedia of chess, and became a naturalized French citizen in 1848, and professor of drawing at the special school of design in 1855. His works include many historical portraits at Versailles, and many large paintings, as "The Chastity of Joseph," " The Awakening of Adam," and "Tabitha resuscitated by St. Peter." The last was purchased by the government for the church of Saint Pierre de Gobert near Agen, where it has become a shrine for pilgrims. His "Charity," "Jacob's Ladder," and "Vision of Zacharias" are all powerful paintings, which were much admired at the exhibition of 1855. Among his later works are "Music" (1852), "Diana and Endymion" (1857), "Job" (1857), "The Love of Angels" (1863), "Orpheus" (1866), and "Hope" (1868).
