About the Artist

(1673-1733) Born in Paris, Bernard Picart died in Amsterdam. Listed in Benezit's Dictionary of Artists, Picart is listed as a painter, miniaturist, engraver, draughtsman.

Picart chose to depict allegorical subjects, mythological subjects and portraits.  "Heir to the tradition of Jacques Callot, his figures are drawn wit precision and sometimes minute detail and have a particular elegance and a lively technique that anticipates the spirit of the 18th century, particularly that of Gillot and Watteau. Picart was able to achieve a synthesis of Dutch taste and French wit. He was perhaps the most remarkable figure in Dutch engraving in the first third of the 18th century and he was clearly influenced by the French School."
