The artist

Jean Lepautre 1618-1682

Draftsman and engraver. He devoted himself to engraving and during his long career produced nearly fifteen hundred etchings and chisels. Appointed ordinary engraver of King Louis XIV in 1667, he was received at the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture in 1677. Estimated at 1500 plates, his entire work is varied and covers various themes. His recognition by Colbert earned him the right to engrave boards of rare quality for the King's Cabinet. Thus we can mention the entire Grotto of Versailles, the Festival given at Versailles on 18 July 1668, the Entertainment given by the King in 1674, as well as the engravings of various basins, statues and vases of the Versailles Park that the chalcography of the Louvre preserves.
