He painted the The Crowning of the Virgin in the church of Notre-Dame-de-Lorette [2] and had large commissions for the Galerie des Batailles. He exhibited at the Paris Salon between 1819 and 1839. Elected to the Paris Academy in 1836, Picot was also created an officer of the Legion of Honor in 1832.
