Claude Louis Masquelier

called le fils, 1781–1852, Paris

Having studied under his father, Louis Joseph Masquelier, the engraver, Claude Louis Masquelier, was then apprenticed to Pierre Gabriel Langlois (1754–1810). His talent as a printmaker was soon spotted and in 1804 the young artist won the Grand Prix for engraving. Masquelier subsequently lived and worked in Rome, later becoming a teacher at the city’s Académie de France. Nagler and Le Blanc record his modest oeuvre of repro­ductive engravings.
