Detail of Lallemand's portrait of Charles Perrault (1672)

Philippe Lallemand (1636–1716) was a French portrait painter of the lesser rank, born at Reims. He was influenced by Robert de Nanteuil (1623–1678). The 19th-century confusion with Georges Lallemand of Nancy, a teacher of Nicolas Poussin, Philippe de Champaigne and Laurent de La Hyre, has long been cleared up.[1]

His morceaux de reception for the Académie royale de peinture et de sculpture in 1672[2] were his portraits of the author Charles Perrault and of the financier Gédéon Berbier du Metz, president of the Chambre des Comptes.

Lallemand died in Paris in 1716.
