French painter, etcher and draughtsman. His known artistic activity
dates only from 1602 to 1616 and he is now familiar chiefly for his
etchings and drawings, all his decorative works and most of his
paintings having perished. His highly idiosyncratic style was
inspired by such Italian artists as Parmigianino, by the School of
Fontainebleau and by northern artists including Albrecht Dürer and
Bartholomeus Spranger. His work would seem to express a private and
nervous religious sensibility through a style of the greatest
refinement. It is among the latest and most extreme expressions of
Mannerism. He was influential on other Lorraine artists: Claude
Déruet was his pupil, as, perhaps, was Georges de La Tour.
