André Bouys, a French portrait painter and mezzotint engraver, was born at Hyères about the year 1656. He studied under François de Troy, and acquired sufficient reputation to gain admission into the Academy in 1688, when he presented a portrait of the painter Charles de La Fosse, now at Versailles, where there are likewise two portraits of himself, one of them representing also his first wife. He died in Paris in 1740, having engraved several portraits, among which are the following:
