Biography engraver: Michel Dorigny (1616 – 1665) was a French painter and engraver.

Biography artist: Simon Vouet (9 January 1590 – 30 June 1649) was a French painter who studied and rose to prominence in Italy before being summoned by Louis XIII to serve as Premier peintre du Roi in France. He and his studio of artists created religious and mythological paintings, portraits, frescoes, tapestries, and massive decorative schemes for the king and for wealthy patrons, including Richelieu. During this time, “Vouet was indisputably the leading artist in Paris,” and was immensely influential in introducing the Italian Baroque style of painting to France. He was also, according to Pierre Rosenberg, “without doubt one of the outstanding seventeenth-century draughtsmen, equal to Annibale Carracci and Lanfranco.”.
