Louis Bélanger travelled extensively through Europe and is best known for works he produced on the continent and in England. He was based in London for a time and exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1790 and 1797, showing just three works there in total. In the published listing of ‘Royal Academy Contributors and their Works’ he is described as ‘Painter to the Duke of Orleans’ and in 1790 his address is given as No. 2, Old Bond Street. By 1797 he had moved, although his new address is given simply as Knightsbridge. He was appointed painter to the Swedish court in Stockholm in 1798, where he remained until his death in 1816. Swedish painter Carl Johan Fahlcrantz (1774-1861) was his pupil.
