Louis-Eugène Mouchon (Paris, August 30, 1843-March 3, 1914) was a French engraver, especially noted for its stamp designs. His most famous pieces are the famous French type MOUCHON designs from 1900 and its contribution to the subsequent La Semeuse (from 1902), but he was also asked in many European countries for his designs. He made portraits of the Belgian King Leopold II, the Portuguese kings Louis I, Carlos I and Queen Wilhelmina. (Source: Wikipedia, Read more about Louis-Eugène Mouchon on Wikipedia (Dutch))
