(ca. 1656 - 1722)
Pierre Aveline was a print-publisher and print-seller. He probably trained with Adam Pérelle and, like him, specialized in topographical representations. He engraved in suites many views of Paris and of provincial, European and African cities, mixing etching and burin work in a style that was often rather unpolished. In 1685 he obtained a royal licence for ten years, authorizing him to reproduce ‘le profil des maisons royales’; he then published views of Versailles.
