DAC Collection Artist Information
French painter, etcher, and draftsman
Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
Idiosyncratic artist who may have been born and may have trained in Bassigny. He is known today through his etchings and drawings, as all of his decorative works and most of his paintings are lost. He was influenced by Italian artists as Parmigianino, by the School of Fontainebleau and by northern artists such as Albrecht Durer and Bartholomeus Spranger. His highly refined work, among the latest and most extreme expressions of Mannerism, seems to express a private and nervous religious sensibility.
