French. 1630-1678. "Nanteuil's portraits will always be ranked among the finest productions of art. In his first works he appears to have imitated the style of Mellan in single strokes only, without being crossed; but he afterward adopted a manner greatly superior, which, for clearness and beauty of effect, has never been surpassed." Original. [P. 13; see entries 03520626, 03520627, 03520628, 03520629, 03520630, 03520631, 03520632, 03520633, 03520634, and 03520635 for the group of works by this artist.]
