Marcellus Laroon the Younger (2 April 1679 – 1 June 1772) was an English painter and draughtsman of French origin. George Vertue, a contemporary who knew him well, said he painted for pleasure rather than profit. Laroon was born in Chiswick, Middlesex. His father Marcellus Laroon was a Dutch-born painter and engraver, with a French artist father called Marcellus Lauron. Laroon the Elder brought his son to England whilst a child, and his career was entirely in England. In 1707 he enlisted in the army, participating in campaigns in Flanders, Spain and Scotland. During a break on half-pay from military life (c. 1712-15) he joined the Rose and Crown Club in London and trained in Godfrey Kneller's Academy of Painting and Drawing. Most of Laroon's paintings date from after his retirement from the army, with the rank of Captain, in 1732. In the late 1750s Laroon settled in Oxford, where he died in 1772 He also painted numerous small pictures, on humorous or free subjects, in the style of Egbert van Heemskerk, some of which were engraved in mezzotint by Isaac Beckett and John Smith.
