Le « sr de Lavenage ». L’homme à l’origine de l’ultime tentative d’ériger les graveurs en corps de métier (1660)

Abstract : In 1660, a nobleman known only as ‘the lord of Lavenage’ tried to turn printmaking into a sworn craft, practiced by guild members only. This sparked widespread protest among printmakers who had been assured once and for all, by royal decree (the Edict of Saint-Jean-de-Luz), that their craft would remain free. The identity of this mysterious Lavenage has been the subject of speculation for two centuries, and here we propose to name him as Jacques Seton, lord of Lavenage, a member of the king’s Garde écossaise (Scots guard) who lost his charge circa 1660 in the modifications of the State machinery implemented by Mazarin.
