Frédéric Cazenave

circa 1770–1843, Paris

The painter and engraver, Frédéric Cazenave, who is known to have been active in Paris from the time of the Revolution, mostly worked in stipple engraving and crayon manner, a technique in which he was immensely skilled, often executing his works in colour. His best-known prints stem from the Empire period, when Cazenave made reproductive engravings after designs by contemporary artists such as Louis-Léopold Boilly, Jean Baptiste Regnault and Pierre Paul Prud’hon.
