The prolific artist Bernard Picart was trained in the graphic arts by his father Étienne Picart, but the son’s acumen as a draughtsman, printmaker and print seller far surpassed his father’s. In the early 1690s, as a student of Sébastien Le Clerc the Elder, Picart worked in Paris and travelled to Antwerp and Amsterdam in 1696. Following the tragic death of his wife and children in 1708, Picart emigrated from France and settled first in The Hague, and then in Amsterdam. This fortuitous change of scene brought Picart into the accomplished orbit of Dutch publishing and printmaking, which was then at its zenith, producing both exemplary editorial projects and beautifully illustrated luxury editions.
Picart’s magnum opus, the nine-volume Cérémonies et coutumes religieuses de tous les peuples du monde. Représentées par des figures dessinées de la main de Bernard Picard was published in Amsterdam from 1723 to 1743, and focused on popular ceremonies and religious customs from around the world. In addition to providing the illustrations, Picart is also thought to be the author of the work. Picart’s publishing firm, on the Singel near the Munt, was continued after his death in 1733 by his wife Anne. The ‘veuve Picart’ published a catalogue of her husband’s works in 1734, the Impostures Innocentes.
