Biography   Johann Ludwig Wernhard Faesch

Faesch specialized in portrait drawings of famous actors and his oeuvre is an important record of the French theatre in the 18th Century. The first drawing shows Hector and Valère, both characters in the comedy Le Joueur, written by Jean-François Regnard in 1696. The second drawing shows Miss Dumesnil (1713-1803) as Athalie in the eponymous play by Jean Racine, written in 1691, generally considered one of the greatest tragedies of the 17th Century.
