Abraham Bosse

1602 Tours – 1676 Paris

Abraham Bosse was not only an extremely productive engraver, but also made a name for himself as a very influential art theoretician. His manual on the art of etching (Traité des manières de graver en taille douce sur l’airain ...), which first appeared in 1645, was still being reissued in the 18th century and even translated into English, thus providing a theoretical foundation for several generations of printmakers.
