Antoine Maxime Monsaldy

1768–1816, Paris

The etcher and engraver, Antoine Maxime Monsaldy, studied from 1787 to 1791 under Jean François Pierre Peyron at the Académie Royale in Paris. After 1800 he lived and worked for a lengthy period in Rome. Monsaldy produced a number of much sought-after stipple engraved portraits, printed in colour, of such prominent figures as the Empress Josephine Bonaparte and the Empress Marie Louise. He also tackled subjects from antiquity and the contemporary revolutionary period, distinguishing himself, in particular, with various large engraved views of the Paris Salon in the years VI to X.
