Laurent Guyot studied under Tiliard. He made his debut at the Salon in 1793 with views of the countryside around Rome after Pernet, and several genre scenes after Mallet, Lheine, Garneray, and Bellanger. That so many well established artists should supply him with their subjects for reproduction suggests that he was already enjoying a healthy reputation. It can be surmised that Guyot, like many other young artists, was reluctant to exhibit in the restrictive academic climate of the time, which had seen the abolition of the Académie de Saint Luc. Even so, Guyot already ranked among the best colour engravers. At the ...

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....
