Pierre Nolasque Bergeret

1782 Bordeaux – 1863 Paris

Pierre Nolasque Bergeret received his training together with François Marius Granet and Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres in the studio of Jacques-Louis David and from François-André Vincent. He soon enjoyed the protection of Baron Dominique Vivant Denon, who gave him the honourable commission of reproducing a series of masterpieces from the Louvre using the new medium of lithography. Bergeret, who was otherwise known mainly for his troubadour-style history paintings, thus became a pioneer of lithography in France.
