Painter, watercolourist, draughtsman, engraver, lithographer, illustrator. Portraits, genre scenes. Designs for stained glass.

The brother of Eugène Devéria, Achille Jacques Jean Marie studied under M. Laffitte and Girodet. In the 1820s, he shared a studio with his brother in the family home in Paris. Their younger sister, the flower painter and musician Laure, lived with them, and their home became the meeting-place for young romantics such as Victor Hugo, A. de Musset, E. Delacroix, St-Beuve and F. Liszt. Through his marriage, Devéria became the son-in-law of the lithographer Charles Motte, whose technique influenced him. In 1848, he was appointed assistant curator of the print exhibition room at the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris, and in April 1857 he became its curator. His work as a draughtsman is not significant. The best of it consists of cartoons for stained glass that are kept in the Musée de Versailles. As an engraver, he produced a large number of libertine engravings and reproduced the etchings of his brother. But Devéria was primarily a talented lithographer. His prints, which mostly appeared between 1828 and 1835, were published in the form of notebooks and illustrated books. In the 1830s, he illustrated several books for children, notably Jean de La Fontaine's ...
