Daniel-Louis Derveaux (August 26, 1914 – November 14, 2010) was a French artist active throughout the 20th century. Derveaux was born in Paris, France. By 18 he had already become an excellent artist, mastering drawing, xylography, and copper engraving. His work is varied, but much of his early work, completed in the 1930s, involved French town and country scenes. He took part in World War II between 1936 and 1940, where he produced numerous cartoons and watercolors lampooning the war-time political environment. He began issuing maps with historical themes around 1942. Over the next 30 years he issued more than 50 geographical maps. Stylistically, Derveaux's maps are a composite of the styles developed by Blaeu and Homann, but embracing themes that would have been unusual in early maps – such as the wines and cheeses of France, the Pilgrimage to Santiago de Composetlla, the Knights Templar, the Crusades, and more. Derveaux died in his adopted home of Saint-Malo in 2010. Derveaux produced thousands of prints in his lifetime and sold them through his firm, Editions d'Art Daniel Derveaux. Daniel's son, Pierre Derveaux took over Editions d'Art Daniel Derveaux in 1982 and issued several stylistically similar maps on his own account.
