Georges Tasnière (1632?–1704)

Born at Besanon, Georges was one of the most important engravers of the Baroque period. He first studied at Paris, and then went on to work mostly at the ducal court of Turin, at least between 1670 to 1678, and at Vienna. He completed many plates after the works of Domenico Piola, and signed his work 'Taurini'. His best known works are his portraits of the counts of Savoy. His son was the engraver Bartholomé Joseph Tasnière. Georges died at Turin.
