De Boissieu (1736-1810)
Painter engraver from France - Lyon who made a remarkable oeuvre during his long career. Arthur Hind was very promising about him and not without reason. His technique was renewing by the use of thin china paper on a woven backing witch allowed the printing of very fine lines. His style was very personal and his work is impressive by quality, format and subject.
As the son of a medical doctor he worked first in the atelier of Charles Frontier and made fabrique like drawings but then was allowed to make his own work drawn after life. Engaged by the Parisian publisher Pariset he published his first group of landscape etchings in 1758. It was J.G. Wille who invited him to Paris to work with him and their he met also Greuze, Vernet, Watelet.... With some other artists he went to Italy for some years and then returned to Lyon. Besides an artist he was also Tresorier de France.
