Pierre Lombart (1612 or 1613-1682), Engraver

Sitter in 4 portraits
Artist associated with 132 portraits
French engraver Pierre Lombart learned his craft in Paris. He gained a strong reputation for his portrait work and his engravings after the old masters. He moved to England to pursue his engraving skills during the final years of the reign of King Charles I. He made his name in England with two portraits of Oliver Cromwell. His best works, however, are considered to be the prints he made, known collectively as The Countesses; a series of half-length portraits, all after van Dyck. Lombart remained in London until 1672 when he returned to spend the rest of his life in his native Paris.
