    A patron of the arts and also a printmaker, Saint-Non copied drawings by many of France's leading artists, which he published among the etchings in his collected works, Griffonis (1755–78). About 1765, he developed aquatint as a tonal process he could apply to etchings to approximate ink washes in the drawings of his friends Fragonard and Hubert Robert.
