Lithography did not really get under way in France until 1816 when Lasteyrie and Godefroy Engelmann, both trained in the shop of lithography inventor Alois Senefelder (1771-1834) in Germany, opened separate lithographic establishments in Paris. Antoine-Jean Gros and Carle and Horace Vernet were among the earliest artists engaged by Lasteryrie and Godefroy to draw original designs upon the lithographic stone.
