Nicolas Bernard Lépicié

1735-1784 France/Rococo

 

Brief Biography-Nicolas Bernard Lépicié studied in the atelier of Carle Van Loo; he had previously been taught engraving by his father François-Bernard, who was an engraver along with his wife, Renée-Elisabeth. The Académie Royale accepted Nicolas in 1769, and he eventually became a professor in 1777. Carle Vernet and Jean-Antoine-Théodore Giroust were but two of his many eminent students. His works were notably of historical and genre subjects. Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin influenced his work.
