John Landre, Sculptor

(d. 1765)


From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was probably a nephew of Peter Landré, a native of Orleans, who had a house and nursery-gardens on the east side of St. Stephen's Green, Dublin, and died in 1747. Whether John Landré worked as a sculptor in Dublin is not known; possibly he was a pupil of Van Nost (q.v.). He died London in 1765. In his will, dated 16th November, 1765, and proved 23rd December following, he describes himself as of the Parish of St. Giles, statuary, and bequeaths his house in Dublin to his wife Mary.
