Biographical history

Adolphe Goupil is an art trader and engraver. In 1829, Goupil and his partner Rittner founded Maison Goupil which printed and sold engravings and lithographs. The house specialised in the sale of engravings after pictures by Ingres, Hippolyte Delaroche and Léopold Robert. After Rittner's death in 1842, Goupil formed a new partnership with Théodore Virbet creating Goupil, Virbet et Cie. In 1850, Adolphe Goupil formed Goupil & Cie. Goupil & Cie concentrated on buying, selling, and editing prints. The firm's factory outside of Paris employed skilled craftsmen to produce engraved, etched, photographic and even sculptural copies of artworks in vast quantities. Goupil & Cie's reproductions are largely credited with making Jean-Léon Gérôme a well known artist. Adolphe Goupil partnered with many other people until his retirement in 1882, including Vincent van Goph, the uncle of the famous painter with the same name.
