A draughtsman and printmaker in the last years of the Grand Siècle, Claude Gillot is known for the inventiveness and originality of his works, heralding the freedom of expression and mores of the Régence period (1715–1723).

With his parodies, witchcraft scenes, farces and fairground improvisations, he is an artist known for satire, comedy and performing arts. His countless drawings, coveted by collectors, nevertheless attest to extensive activity in a broad range of fields: illustration, theatre and opera, costume and interior decoration.
