Amand was born at Gault, near Blois, in 1730. He studied under Pierre L'Enfant. In 1755 he was awarded the Prix de Rome for his Samson and Delilah; he afterwards exhibited at the Salon numerous subjects from ancient history and mythology. He also engraved several of his own compositions. He died at Paris, in 1769.
