Biography:
Jean-Michel Moreau le Jeune was a wigmaker’s son who studied with a painter and engraver. He traveled to St. Petersburg with his master in 1758, returning to Paris a year later. He dropped painting and began drawing for engravings and illustrating for Diderot’s Encyclopedie. He collaborated with Francois Boucher and illustrated the writings of Voltaire and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Moreau became Designer to the King in 1770 and Designer and Engraver to the King in 1781. Moreau also illustrated for a costume book, Monuments de costume physique et morale, that was first published in 1777. He joined the Academie Royale in 1789 and worked through the French Revolution, appointed to royal office by Louis XVIII in 1814.
