Andien de Clermont (died 1783) was a French artist who worked in England in the 18th century (ca.1716-1756).[1][2] He was particularly known for his decorative flower paintings[3] in the Rococo style, and for "singeries, chinoiseries, and turqueries."[4] He decorated interiors at Kirtlington Park, Langley Hall, Wentworth Castle, Wilton House,[4] and "the second earl of Strafford's (now destroyed) dining room at No. 5 St. James's Square, London."
