Antoinette Bouzonnet-Stella was a French engraver.
She was born at Lyons in about 1641, the daughter of Étienne Bouzonnet, a goldsmith, and his wife, Madeleine Stella (sister of the artist Jacques Stella). Her siblings included Antoine and Claudine Bouzonnet-Stella.
According to Joseph Strutt:
She made more use of the point than her sister [i.e. Claudine], and etched in a very powerful style. She harmonized the roughness, left by the aqua-fortis, with the graver, in such a manner as to produce a pleasing effect. She drew correctly, especially the extremities of the human figure, whuch she expressed with great taste.
Her works include:
- Romulus and Remus suckled by a Wolf; after Antoine Bouzonnet Stella.
- The Entry of the Emperor Sigismund into Mantua; after a stucco frieze by Giulio Romano.
