Father was a painter of miniatures. At the age of 20 he went to Paris to publish a series of lithographs of bourgeouis life. He acheived notoriety as a political satirist (including the contributions to "La Caricature") until new regulations in 1835 made him turn to book illustration. He was known for blending animal and human characteristics in his caricatures and illustrations. Toward the end of his life he turned to macabre and fantastical subjects.
