LaGrangeJVJacques La Grange was born in Clanwilliam (near Cape Town) in South Africa in 1895. He studied at London University, and at some point immigrated to the United States. La Grange established himself as a painter, illustrator, and printmaker specializing in nautical subjects.

In 1936 he and his wife, Helen La Grange, published Clipper Ships of America and Great Britain 1833-1869. There was a lavish hardcover limited edition of 300 copies signed by both Helen and Jacques, with 37 tipped in color woodblock prints. La Grange had a solo exhibition at the Buchanan Gallery in 1929, the Babcock Gallery and the 56th Street Gallery in New York in 1930, and the Roerich Museum in 1931.
