Francois Nicolas Martinet

French, 1731-1800

Martinet was one of the most important bird illustrators of his time in France. He engraved the plates for numerous works on natural history, especially ornithology and did the illustrations for the “Histoire Naturelle Des Oiseaux” [Natural History of the Birds] published by L’Imprimerie Royale, Paris, 1770–86.
