Historical Note

Jacques Maroger (1884-1962) was an artist, art restorer, author, and teacher. Maroger studied anatomy in medical school and studied art and painting with Jacques-Emile Blanche and Louis Anquetin. Maroger was known for his "Maroger Medium" Italian Renaissance style of painting, and for his portraits and still lifes. Before coming to Baltimore in 1940, Maroger was the technical director of the Louvre Museum’s conservation laboratory in Franch. After coming to Baltimore, Maroger began teaching at the Maryland Institute (now Maryland Institute College of Art) as a faculty member. Maroger's artwork was displayed in exhibits in Baltimore during the 1940s and later after his death in the 1960s.

Several of Maroger's portraits are present in the Portrait Collection of The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions which also holds portraits painted by Dean M. Larson who donated this collection to the UBalt Special Collection and Archives.

[Information for this historical note was gathered from Maroger's obituary in the Baltimore Sun, 1962; and from The Johns Hopkins Chesney Medical Archives Portrait Collection website and online collection: portraitcollection.jhmi.edu/]
