Louis Auguste Turgis (May 2, 1818 - March 31, 1894) was a French printmaker and seller. Born in Gouville-sur-Mer, Turgis took over the family printselling business after his elder brother √Člimir Auguste Turgis (November 20, 1838 - October 7, 1856) died. Before Louis took over the business, his mother and elder brother had successfully expanded outside Paris to Toulouse, several cities in Spain, and, in 1854, New York City. Under Louis's guidance, the business continued to grow. They maintained their offices in New York and Paris and by 1893 their catalog's introduction was published in French, English, Spanish, and Italian. In 1891, Turgis was joined by his sons and the firm was renamed L. Turgis et fils.
