Made by ‘Francois Perrier’ after ‘Giovanni Lanfranco’. Francois Perrier (Pontarlier 1590 ? Paris 1650) was a French painter and etcher. He resided in Rome from 1620 to 1625, where he became a follower of Giovanni Lanfranco and worked with De Cortona and Carracci. He then returned to France, and settles in Paris in 1630. There, Perrier worked in the circle of Vouet and had Charles Le Brun as his pupil. He is mostly remembered for his two series of prints after classical sculptures. These provided visual repertoires of classical models for generations of European artists and collectors.
