Jean Daullé

1703 Abbeville – 1763 Paris

Jean Daullé, a native of the northern French town of Abbeville, went to Paris as a young man and achieved an initial succès d’estime in 1735 with a portrait engraving after Mignard. His skill as an engraver brought him to the notice of no less than the court painter, Hyacinthe Rigaud, who subsequently commissioned him to make reproductive engravings after his own works. Daullé bequeathed an extensive printed oeuvre including ninety-four portrait engravings. In the latter part of his career he was often assisted by Johann Georg Wille (1715–1808), whose rise was largely attributable to Daullé’s support.
