The fall of Icarus (detail) from the workshop of Bernard Picart, 1731

Published some prints at the same address as his father, therefore a confusion between the two is possible. Published prints by Dirk Maas.

Biography:

Engraver, son of Etienne who was sometimes called ‘Picart le Romain’; specialised in book illustration, in which he was a major figure with a large output. Trained in Paris but worked in Netherlands in September 1696 – December 1698. Married in Paris 1702 with four children. After death of wife and children turned Huguenot, and left definitively for Holland in January 1710, taking his aged father with him. Settled initially in The Hague, then in 1711 in Amsterdam, where remarried in 1712. His wife henceforth acted as his agent in sales, and was notorious for the high prices she charged and for getting proofs of all his book illustrations from their publishers (see Gersaint in the Lorangère catalogue, 1744).
