(b Pithiviers, c. 1612; d Paris, 11 July 1663).

French painter. He became a master in the painters’ guild of Saint-Germain-des-Prés in 1629. From c. 1636 he was in Italy, but he is known to have been in Paris again in 1641; in 1645 he became a member of the Académie de St Luc, and in 1651 he was also a member of the Académie Royale after the temporary amalgamation of the two institutions. Like many of his generation he was deeply influenced by the art of the Fontainebleau school. The Mannerist tendency of his style—its elegant elongations of bodies, its self-consciously graceful poses, its bracing, slightly acidic colouring and the curving rhythms of his compositions—must have been confirmed by his contact in Italy with the painting of Parmigianino, Correggio and Barocci. His works also show the influence of the art of Raphael and of such Bolognese painters as Guido Reni, and he acquired the nickname ‘le petit Guide’. He is known to have worked for the Parisian tapestry factories, and Félibien included him in a list of artists working on tapestry cartoons in association with Simon Vouet.
