He employed a succession of artists in his house and, with their assistance, published a considerable number of pieces (more than 550 between 1761 and 1799), which are in general purely commercial productions.

There is much confusion about the biography and whereabouts of the Huquiers, apparently because of mistakes in earlier works about Gabriel and Jacques Gabriel. Le Blanc swaps their first names around, giving the father the names of the son. Bryan's Dictionary states that Gabriel died in London, yet there is a certificate of burial drawn up in the parish of St-Benoît for the 30 June 1772 to prove the opposite. His alleged flight to England following the publication of a pamphlet attacking the Jesuits and subsequently pinned on him has not been verified and fits better with what we know of Jacques Gabriel. Because of their place in the history of French engraving, it is a matter of no small importance to get as clear a view as possible of these artists....

On subsequent certificates, particularly the marriage certificate of a daughter of Robert Nanteuil to Michel Hardouin on ...

Kraus was the son-in-law and student of Melchior Küsel. He imitated Sébastien Le Clerc and produced copies of Albrecht Dürer and Lucas of Leiden. He engraved views, biblical subjects and worked for booksellers. A reference by Le Blanc giving his date of birth as 1737 and date of death as 1806 must be mistaken, because when referring to the artist's work he mentions pieces dated 1685, 1694 and 1700 among others....
