Charles-Antoine Jombert and Charles-Nicolas Cochin


Venus, Study of Eyes


Two studies of hands


Proportions of Laocoon, proportions of the gladiator


Charles-Antoine Jombert was a bookseller who was closely associated with Charles-Nicolas Cochin from the time of his youth. Here is a link to an abstract of Charles-Antoine Jombert (1712-1784). Un libraire entre sciences et arts = Charles-Antoine Jombert (1712-1784), a bookseller for both science and the humanities by C. Bousquet-Bressolier. He published Catalog of the work of Nic Ch. Cochin. This is a link the title page.

A description of their relationship appears in French engravers and draughtsmen of the XVIIIth century By Lady Emilia Francis Strong Dilke.

Alibris has modern reprints.

I guess the images are prints of the work of Cochin that were published by Jombert. See them on Ebay
