Laurent de La Hyre

1606–1656, Paris

Laurent de La Hyre made a name for himself in his native Paris in the first half of the 17th century above all as a painter of religious and mythological scenes, although he also took an interest early on in printmaking and left an exquisite oeuvre of high-quality etchings. After studying in Fontainebleau he was active for a while in Paris in the flourishing studio run by Georges Lallemand.
