TOPFFER Adam-Wolfgang (b. 1766, Geneve, d. 1847, Geneve) Nationality : Swiss

Swiss painter, caricaturist and engraver. He trained as an engraver in Lausanne and while there illustrated Horace-Benedict de Saussure's Voyage dans les Alpes (Geneva, 1779) in 1786. He studied under Joseph-Benoit Suvee in Paris (1789-91) and was influenced by Jean-Louis Demarne. On his return to Geneva Topffer went on painting expeditions with Pierre-Louis De La Rive; these studies of the environs of the city inspired his best work. In 1796 he exhibited caricatures at the Salon in Geneva and from 1804 to 1807 was in Paris, where he was Drawing Master to Josephine Bonaparte.
