|Klauber, Ignaz Sebastian|
|name:||Klauber, Ignaz Sebastian|
|also known as:||Klauber, J.S, KLauber, Joseph Sebastian|
Ignaz was the son of Johann Baptist Klauber.
Worked on James Cook's voyages (Copies of earlier engravings from others for a Dutch edition of the accounts: I. S. Klauber, Amsterdam 1795)
He was the most renowned member of his family. He first studied with his father, then went to Rome, then to Paris to study with Johann Georg Wille. He was accepted at the Paris Academy and became Graveur du Roi soon later, but went back to Augsburg during French Revolution, moved on to Nuremberg and finally, in 1796, to St. Petersburg, where he became engraver of the court and director of the Academy of Engravers. He very probably died in St. Petersburg.
The Klauber family were engravers and fine art publishers from Augsburg, Germany. Two of the sons of ancestor Franz Christoph Klauber established a catholic fine art publishing company by 1737, together with Gottfried Bernhard Göz (1708-1774), who ran the enterprise on his own by 1742. Anyways, Klauber brothers stayed as a kind of trade mark until the end of the century, and longer.
