During the French Revolution, Lefevre turned to illustrating books rather than painting in oil due to the erosion of the market for portraits. He was particularly known for his portraits of political figures (such as Napoleon) and for society ladies, and obtained numerous commissions from Napoleon himself. He eventually became court painter for Louis XVIII, and died in Paris in 1830.
