Thomas Compigne was a peintre and tabletier (in England a toy maker) who worked under the patronage of Louis XV. He was based in the Rue Grenetta at the 'Roi David'. His speciality were exquisite pictures of country houses, townscapes and landscapes. These were executed in gouache, silver and gold on a pewter or tortoiseshell ground and were much admired and sought after by the rich cognoscenti.
