Louis-Marin Bonnet (1743–1793)

A French Rococo engraver in aquatint and in chalk, and a draughtsman, Bonnet was born in Paris, and later resided for some time at St Petersburg where he engraved some portraits of persons of the Russian Court. On his return to Paris, he published several plates, executed in imitation of drawings in crayons, of which style he pretended to be the inventor. They are chiefly after Boucher, and other modern French masters.
