French Caravaggesque painter, who, together with George de la Tour, was the most indivualistic and sentive of French painters of the genre in the 17th century. Many of the attributions to him are speculative as little is known of his life and circumstances. He visited Rome in 1619-26, during which time he was probably inspired by the works of Caravaggio, Carcassonne in 1627 and Toulouse from 1632, where several of his attributed paintings are held.
