Jean-Jacques Champin, a French painter in water-colours and lithographer, was born at Sceaux in 1796. He was a pupil of Storelli and of Regnier, and devoted himself chiefly to historical landscapes. He lithographed a series of views of Old Paris, and in conjunction with Regnier produced the 'Habitations des personages les plus célèbres de la France depuis 1790 jusqu'a nos jours.' He also contributed designs to the 'Magasin Pittorresque,' the 'Illustration,' and many other illustrated publications of his time. He died in 1860.
