Little is known about the life of Michel Audran, who headed one of three workshops of high warp looms at the Gobelins manufactory from 1732 until his death in 1771. He served as a manager directing the production of tapestries in his workshop. Tapestries produced under his direction or that of his son Jean, who succeeded him, usually bear the woven signature of AUDRAN.
