Abraham-Louis-Rodolphe Ducros
1748 Yverdon / Switzerland – Lausanne 1810

Swiss painter and draughtsman

Ducros was supposed to work as a merchant, but he decided to become an artist. In 1770 he went to Italy and he stayed more then thirty years in Rome, during the 1790th also in Naples, Sicily and Malta.

1805 or 1806 he went back home, first to Nyon, after that to Lausanne, where he founded an art school. He was most interested in making watercolour paintings and he gained much praise for his works, which became famous for their strong colours and the special natural effects.

Together with the engraver G. Volpato (1733-1803) he published a series with Roman landscapes and ruins, made after his drawings and coloured under his supervision.
