French classical painter.

Colombel went to Rome at the end of the 1670s, where he stayed for a long time. There, he copied the works of Raphael and Poussin and closely adopted the classical style of the latter. He became somewhat famous as he was admitted in to the Academia di San Luca in 1686.

He returned to France for an unknown reason in 1693 and was admitted to the French Academy of Painting the following year; his reception piece was Mars and Rhea Silvia. He later became associate professor in 1701 and professor in 1705.

The Museum of Rouen (his birthplace) has recently set up his first retrospective (see the report here).
