Marie Therese Charlotte of France (December 19, 1778 - 19 October 1851) nicknamed "Madame Royale," she was the first child of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette and the only one to survive the French Revolution.

Francesco Bartolozzi (1727-1815) was an Italian engraver. The son of a goldsmith, Bartolozzi studied painting in Florence, trained as an engraver in Venice and began his career in Rome. In 1763 Richard Dalton, art dealer and librarian to George III, met him and invited him to London, promising him a post as engraver to the king. Bartolozzi moved to London the following year, and remained for thirty-five years. He executed numerous engravings for the King. He also made many engravings of paintings by Italian masters and by his friend, the painter Giovanni Cipriani. In 1768 Bartolozzi was the only engraver to become a founder member of the Royal Academy of Arts. He moved to Lisbon in 1802 as director of the National Academy.

Henri Pierre Danloux (1753 - 1809) was a French portrait painter and etcher. He was Paris and went in Rome with his friend Vien until 1780. Afterwards he settled in Lyon, then fled Revolution and lived in exile in London from 1791-1800. Danloux exhibited at the RA 1792-96 and 1800. He returned to Paris late 1800.
