Jacques de Favanne

1716–1770, Paris

Jacques de Favanne first trained as an engraver but then turned to painting and was apprenticed to his father, the respected painter, Henri Antoine de Favanne (1668–1752, Paris). In 1753 he was active as “chef des peintres pour la marine” in Rochefort. Portalis describes nine works in Jacques’ hand, mostly reproductive engravings after Watteau, Lemoyne and Lancret.
