Born in Besançon in 1734 into a family of craftsmen, Claude-Joseph Bertrand began his career as a drawing teacher at the Artillery School. His participation in competitions organised by the Academy of Sciences, Belles Lettres and Arts of Besançon for the embellishment of the city, enabled him to showcase his aptitude for architecture. Pierre-Joseph Bertrand was very involved in municipal life as an architect and inspector, and was responsible for a wide variety of creations, including the development of parks and gardens, châteaux and private mansions.
