quitted Dorigny at the same time with Dupuis, but settled here, and undertook to engrave the cartoons 1 for printsellers. His next engagement was a set of the Duke of Marlborough's Battles, to be performed in two years for four-score pounds a plate, having no aid but Du Guernier, who had been in England for some years, and who was chiefly employed in etching frontispieces for books and plays; but that help not being sufficient, Dubosc sent to Paris for Beauvais and Baron, 2 who assisted him to complete the work, in 1717. He afterwards took a shop, and sold prints. Picart having published his Religious Ceremonies in 1733, Dubosc undertook to give that work in English, and brought over Gravelot and Scotin to carry it on ; it came out weekly by subscription. Himself did a plate from the fine picture of Scipio's Continence, by Nicolo Poussin, at Houghton. His portrait was drawn by Smybert.
studied under Chatillon at Paris, and came to England in 1708, but with very moderate talents, though he was reckoned to improve much here by drawing in the academy, which was then frequented, though established only by private contributions among the artists. Du Guernier was chosen director of it, and continued so to his death, which was occasioned by the small-pox, Sept. 19, 1716, when he was but thirty-nine years old. His chief business was engraving frontispieces for plays, and such small histories. His share in the plates of the Duke of Marlborough's battles has been mentioned. At the instance of Lord Halifax he did a large print of Lot and his two Daughters, from Michael Angelo di Caravaggio, and two ample heads of the Duke and Duchess of Queensberry.____________________
