Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Charles Poerson was a pupil of Simon Vouet, probably being in his studio from around 1632 until 1638. Much of Poerson's work is destroyed or lost, and there are few firm dates in his oeuvre. It is, however, clear that his early work was deeply influenced by that of Vouet.

Poerson adopted the contrapposto* figures of the latter, his sense of movement, play of hands and draperies, and the dynamic quality characteristic of his compositions. Indeed, Poërson seems sometimes to have exaggerate (showing 500 of 4646 characters).
