Jean-Etienne Liotard (1702–1789)

Swiss painter, art connoisseur and dealer. He is best known for his portraits in pastel, and for the works from his stay in Turkey.Created by: PICRYL - Public Domain Media Search EngineDated: 1702
Jean-Etienne Liotard was a Swiss painter who was born on 22 December 1702 in Geneva, Switzerland. He is known for his portraits, genre paintings and pastels. Liotard's father was a jeweller and goldsmith, and he initially trained as a miniaturist in his father's workshop.

In 1723, Liotard travelled to Paris, where he studied under the portrait painter Hyacinthe Rigaud. He then spent several years travelling throughout Europe, including Italy and Turkey, where he became fascinated by the culture and costumes of the Ottoman Empire.

Liotard was best known for his pastel portraits, which were much sought after by European aristocrats. He also painted genre scenes, landscapes and still lifes. His style was characterised by realism and attention to detail.

In addition to his painting career, Liotard was also an accomplished draughtsman and engraver. He produced a number of prints and drawings throughout his career.

Liotard died on 12 June 1789 in Geneva, Switzerland. His work can be found in museums and private collections around the world, including the Louvre in Paris and the National Gallery in London.
