Not much is known about Jacques-Antoine Vallin. He entered the school of the French Academy in Paris in about 1775. He was taught by Drevet, Callet and Renou. He exhibited at the Salon between 1791 and 1827. He died after 1831.

This painting of the story of Antiochus and Stratonice is probably only known because it was sold at Sotheby’s in 2011 for $10,000.
