DELATRE or DELATTRE, JEAN MARIE (1745–1840), engraver, was born in 1745 at Abbeville, and, after exercising his craft for some time in Paris, was brought to England in 1770 by William Wynne Ryland. Here he became one of Bartolozzi numerous pupils, and then his principal assistant, a good deal of the work bearing Bartolozzi name being in reality the work of Delatre. Delatre died at North End, Fulham, on 30 June 1840.
