Made by François-Séraphin Delpech after H. J. Hesse. Francois Seraphin Delpech (1778-1825) was a French lithographer known for his portraits of personages of the Revolution and First Empire. At the beginning of the 19th-century, Delpech (1778-1825) ran the most popular lithographic print shop in Paris. Delpech not only made beautiful lithographic prints from his own designs, but printed lithographs after designs by other artists, and sold these prints in his shop.
