About the 16th century artist and painting:
Simon (b. 1590, Paris, d. 1649, Paris)
The fleshly opulence and joyful coloring of Simon Vouet made him, to some extent, a French Rubens. On his return from Rome in 1627 he became Court Painter to Louis XIII and was the founder of that tradition of decorative panting which Le Brun developed. $250.00.
