Les Portraits Des Hommes Illustres François

The images of the exhibit come from Les Portraits Des Hommes Illustres François, a book published in 1668. Marc Vulson, the author, hired François Bignon and Zaquarie Heince to engrave the illustrations, and Jaques Cottin printed it. The book tells the histories of famous French men whose portraits hang in the gallery of the palace of Cardinal Richelieu.
