Painter and engraver Claude Ferdinand Gaillard was born in Paris in 1834. It is assumed that his early studies were with Hopwood and Lecouturier. However, his primary instructor was Cogniet, with whom he began engraving in 1850, the same year he entered the École des Beaux-Arts. Gaillard was decorated in 1876, became officer of the Légion d'honneur in 1886, and President of the Société des Graveurs au Burin in 1886. Just before his death, the government ordered him to make engravings of Leonardo da Vinci's most famous works. He died in Paris in 1887. Contact for more information.
