BiographyTrained with Louis-Simon Lempereur. His oeuvre includes portraits and also landscapes, for example two engravings of Roman ruins (1768; see Hébert and Sjöberg, nos 35 and 36) after Christian Wilhelm Ernst Dietrich, made for Jean-Georges Wille. As a book illustrator, de Launay contributed to some of the most famous books of the period, including the Métamorphoses d’Ovide (Paris, 1767–71; hs 25–34); but he was best known for the amorous scenes that he engraved after such artists as Pierre-Antoine Baudouin, Niclas Lafrensen, Sigmund Freudenberger, Jean-Baptiste Le Prince and, most particularly, Jean-Honoré Fragonard.
