Jean Raymond Hippolyte Lazerges (1817–1887) was a French painter, and composer of mélodies and chansons.

Life and career[edit]

Lazerges was born in Narbonne, France, where his father was a baker.[1] He studied in Paris under the sculptor David d'Angers and the painter François Bouchot.[2]

He travelled to Algeria with his father in 1830.[3] His paintings often depicted Oriental women engaged in every-day activities such as preparing fleece and working at their primitive looms. [4]

Among his light songs Éloge du tabac has been recorded by Paul Van Nevel's Huelgas Ensemble.

His son Jean-Baptiste Paul Lazerges (1845–1902) was also a painter.[5]

He died in Si-Mustapha, a suburb of Algiers, Algeria.
