MOITTE, French family of artists

French family of artists. Its most prominent members were Pierre-Etienne Moitte, a late 18th-century engraver who worked after many contemporary artists, and his eldest son, Jean-Guillaume Moitte, a sculptor and draughtsman in the Neo-classical style. Five of Pierre-Etienne's other children became artists. François-Auguste Moitte (1748-90), Rose-Angélique Moitte and Elisabeth-Mélanie Moitte were engravers; Alexandre Moitte (1750-1828) became a painter, and Jean-Baptiste-Philibert Moitte (1754-1808) was an architect.
