Jean Audran (French, 1667–1756) a representative of one of the most famous dynasties of French engravers. He was the third of six sons of the Lyon master Germain Audran, who introduced him to the basics of the engraver's profession. At a young age, Jean went to Paris, where he became involved in the secrets of high art, working alongside his uncle - the great Gerard Audran, who was the true progenitor of French engraving of the 18th century. Together, they made several prints, and the artist so mastered the manner of his mentor that, as experts say, it is impossible to determine the share of participation of each of them in the creation of the engraving board.
Peter Franciscus Dirks was a Belgian impressionist painter who Peter F. Dirks was part of the Antwerp group of artists "De Scalden"
Peter Paul Rubens (1577–1640) was a highly influential Flemish Baroque painter. Rubens is considered one of the foremost painters of the Baroque period, known for his dynamic compositions, vivid color palette, and dramatic use of light and shadow. He painted a wide range of subjects, including religious and mythological scenes, portraits, landscapes, and historical events. His paintings often featured robust figures and a sense of movement.
Jean-Baptiste Nattier was a French artist born in 1678 and died in 1726. He was known as a portrait painter and worked for the royal court during the reign of Louis XV. His work was characterized by grace and elegance, and his portraits depicted members of the royal family and the upper classes.
