16141675
a Liège Baroque painter. The son of a glass painter, he was instructed in his art by Henri Trippet and Gerard Douffet successively. He visited Rome in 1638, and was invited by the Duke of Tuscany to Florence and employed in decorating one of his galleries. Thence he moved to Paris where he carried out some elaborate decorative work at Versailles and painted for the sacristy of the church of the Augustinians. He returned to Liège in 1647 and executed many paintings for the churches of his native town. In 1670 he was invited to return to Paris, and painted the ceiling of the audience room in the Tuileries. Louis XIV made him a professor of the Royal Academy of Paris.
