Vignon, Claude d. 1670
Exhibition Catalogs
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 33
This Artist, born at Tours, died at a very old age in 1670. He imitated the manner of Michel Angelo Caravaggio. The facility with which he invented and painted his subjects gave him much occupation. He painted at a first stroke and disposed his tints without having to soften them with his pencil, so that his works are easily ascertained. He was an eminent judge of old paintings. [P. 6; see entry 04100001 for a note on the work's provenance.]
