Takes a very large place in the art of his time alongside the Le Nain brothers. Son of a master glass painter. Was placed at the age of 7 as a pupil of Jean Barthélemy. From the age of 14, traces of his genius can be found in Bordeaux castles. Wearing without success he became a soldier.
He left for Rome, Venice and then for a tour of the great cities of Italy. Then, without a protector and Calvinist, he returned to Paris around 1637 and finally enjoyed great success. In 1643 the guild of goldsmiths commissioned a votive painting from him to be offered to the chapter of Notre-Dame.
