Paul Fourdrinier (December 20, 1698-February, 1758) was an engraver and print seller active in London, England during the first half of the 18th century. Paul Fourdrinier, who is also known to have published under the names Peter Fourdrinier and Pierre Fourdrinier, was of French Huguenot extraction from Dieppe, Normandy. His family fled to Groningen, the Netherlands, in the late 17th century. It was here that Paul was born and raised. As a young man he studied engraving with the well known Amsterdam engraver Bernard Picart. Around 1720 Fourdrinier and his wife, Jeanne Theroude, relocated to London. Fourdrinier's aptitude as an engraver quickly attracted a following in London where he is known to have produced a number of important portraits and views, most of where are simply signed "P. Fourdrinier". Fourdrinier was a member of the parish of St. Martin's-in-the-Fields. He died in January of February of 1758, leaving a son, Henry Fourndrinier, to follow in his footsteps.
