Phillipe-Louis PARIZEAU (Paris, 1740 - Paris, 1801)


Relatively little is known of the life and work of the painter, draughtsman and engraver Philippe-Louis Parizeau, who was active in Paris from the early 1760s. A pupil of Johann Georg Wille, he worked as an engraver and painter, but only a few examples of his paintings are known today. His prints included reproductive images after the work of such artists as François Boucher and Salvator Rosa, as well as genre scenes and religious subjects.
