Life of ABRAHAM BOSSE


 Advertisements

 
  French engraver. His large output (more than 1.500 prints) provides a rich source of documentation on 17th-century French life and manners. Many of his engravings are genre scenes, and even his religious works are in modern dress. Bosse taught perspective at the Acadmie Royale from its foundation in 1648 until 1661, when he was expelled for quarrelling with his colleagues over his opposition to Le Brun s dogmatic theories. He wrote treatises on engraving, painting, perspective, and architecture and he occasionally painted.
