Born in 1755, Nicolas claimed the title of painter, chemist, physicist, hot air baloonist and inventor during the fifty years of his life. His historical achievement is undeniable. In 1794, he developed the modern graphite lead from a mixture of clay and graphite, thus making it finally possible to create different hardness grades for pencils. The pencil factory he set up in 1795, enabled France to produce its own calligraphy and drawing materials.
