Michel Dorigny

probably 1616 Saint-Quentin – 1665 Paris

After training for five years under Georges Lallemand in Paris, Michel Dorigny soon joined the circle around the painter, Simon Vouet, with whom he struck up a close and lasting friendship. Dorigny subsequently became one of the main printmaking interpreters of Vouet’s painted oeuvre and was also involved as a painter in several of the master’s artistic projects. His prints include works on religious and mythological themes as well as individual prints and series on Dionysian topics.
