Étienne Jeaurat

1699 Paris – 1789 Versailles

The painter and engraver, Étienne Jeaurat, studied under Nicolas Vleughel, who took him to Rome in 1724. In 1733, he was made a member of the Académie Royale de Peinture, all of whose honours were bestowed on him in the course of his long and illustrious career. Jeaurat initially went in for history painting, but later concentrated on contemporary genre pictures.
