Louis Fabricius Dubourg
Louis Fabricius Dubourg, an historical painter, and an engraver, was born at Amsterdam in 1693, and died there in 1775. He was a scholar of De Lairesse and Jacob van Huysum. After producing several beautiful pictures, some of which may be seen at the Westerkerk, and the New Church at Amsterdam, he exchanged the brush for the graver, and executed some pretty vignettes and other small compositions, and also etched a number of plates from his own designs. His collection of pictures and drawings was sold at Amsterdam in 1776.
