Bertrand (died 1775)
Biography
Works of Art

Painter, op. 1752 - 1775

A flower painter, he arrived at Sèvres in September 1757. He primarily painted detached flowers and friezes, working on tea wares. He also worked as a burnisher in overtime. He is presumably the Bertrand who was one of thirteen painters threatened with dismissal in 1758/9, but in the event retained. He may have been related to the répareur Bertrand who entered the factory in 1754, but was dismissed in the following year for trying to seduce his younger colleagues.
