Jacques Blanchard - French Artist From Art History

Art History - Historical Artists > B > Jacques Blanchard


Historical Artist - Jacques Blanchard (1600 - 1638)

Born in Paris, Jacques Blanchard spent the years from 1624 to 1628 studying in Bologna and Venice. He gained a reputation for his decorative work of which little survives to date. His existing works are mainly small religious and mythological paintings. He was raised and taught by his uncle, the painter Nicolas Bollery. Jacques’s brother and son, Jean-Baptiste Blanchard and Gabriel Blanchard, respectively were also painters. After briefly working in Turin at the court of the Charles Emmanuel I, Duke of Savoy (c.1628) he returned to France and set himself up in Paris in 1629. This painter should not be confused with the French sculptor of the same name who lived from 1634 to 1689.
