Marie-Jeanne Renard du Bos

Marie-Jeanne Renard du Bos[1] (1701 – between 1730 and 1750) was a French engraver.


She was probably born in Paris and became a pupil of Charles Dupuis.[2] She engraved several paintings, including a painting by Francoise Basseporte of a woman at half-length stroking a rabbit, that was published in Versailles immortalisée in 1720. She was mentioned for this in Louis-Marie Prudhomme's dictionary of famous women.[3] Prudhomme claimed the year of her death was unknown in 1830.

She probably died in Paris.
