Benjamin Duvivier

(1730 - 1819)

The son of Jean Duvivier. Trained as a medalist at the academy (1756-58), he took over his deceased father's studio at the Louvre in 1761. In 1764, he became "Graveur des Medailles du Roi", in 1774 "Graveur general des Monnaies de France", and in 1776 a member of the Royal Academy. During the Revolution, in 1791, he was replaced by Auguste Dupre, but continued to be active as a medalist. See Forrer i, pp. 685-89; 6, pp. 296-301; Fred. Alvin in Thieme-Becker 10, pp. 249-50; H.
