Quick Reference

(b Paris, 1 Oct. 1600; bur. Paris, 10 Nov. 1638).

French painter, active mainly in Paris. From 1624 to 1628 he was in Italy and his style reflects both the polished classicism of contemporary Bolognese painting and the sensuous richness of the Venetian School. His contemporary reputation rested largely on decorative work, but little of this survives and he is now known chiefly as a painter of small, sensitive pictures of religious and mythological subjects (Charity, 1637, Courtauld Gall., London).

Subjects: Art.
