Colección: Pierre-Louis de Surugue

Pierre-Louis de Surugue (1716-1772) was one of a small number of printmakers admitted to the French Royal Academy. Prints by him were advertised in the fashionable journal Mercure de France. 

He trained with his father and was received (reçu) by the Académie Royale on 30 September 1741, his morceaux de réception being portraits of the sculptors René Frémin after Maurice-Quentin de La Tour and Simon Guillain after Noël-Nicolas Coypel. He became an Académicien on 29 July 1747. He exhibited at the Salon from 1742 to 1761. He succeeded his father as Contrôleur Général des Rentes. In 1767 he received a pontifical knighthood (Éperon d'Or) and was made count of Laterano.

His style was very like his father's; he engraved portraits and history scenes, as well as some large decorative pieces, such as the project for the Salon de Saint-Cloud and the Apotheosis of Hercules after Charles-Antoine Coypel. His best-known works are the Singe peintre after Chardin and Clytie after Charles-Antoine Coypel.
