Louis Joseph Masquelier

1741 Cysoing near Lille – 1811 Paris

Trained by Jacques Philippe Le Bas, Louis Joseph Masquelier was mainly known for his book vignettes and conventional reproductive engravings after artists such as Baudoin and Monnet as well as for his engravings after 17th century Dutch masters. Among Masquelier’s principal works are his engravings for Jean-Baptiste Wicar’s four volumes of Tableaux, Statues, Bas-reliefs et Camées de la Galerie de Florence et du Palais Pitti, which appeared in 1789.
