    • found: Wikipedia, June 30, 2017("Claudine Bouzonnet-Stella (1636-1697) was a French engraver, most of whose prints were after works by Nicholas Poussin, or by her uncle Jacques Stella, from whom she received her artistic education ... She studied art in Paris under her uncle, Jacques Stella. Having collaborated with various engravers for many years before achieving considerable success as a painter, Stella had decided to set up a workshop to produce prints after his designs. To staff it he brought in his sister's children, Claudine, Antoinette, Francoise and Antoine, all of whom moved from Lyon to live in his apartments in the Louvre. It is, however, likely that Claudine Bouzonnet-Stella also had some training in engraving from another practitioner, as her uncle's printmaking activities had been restricted to etching. Following Jacques Stella's death in 1657 she became head of the workshop, and was granted exclusive rights by the king to publish prints after Stella's designs. In the same year she issued Les jeux et plaisirs de l'enfance, a set of 50 plates which she had engraved herself after a series of drawings by Jacques Stella ... Her technique combined both etching and engraving ... She died in Paris in 1697")
