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

Pierre Mignard was born in 1610 at Troyes, France. After studying under local masters from the early age of twelve, he was sent by the Marechal de Vitry, for whom he had decorated a chapel, to study in the studio of Vouet in Paris. In 1635 he visited Italy and Rome, where he was to spend almost twenty-two years of his life. He established himself as a portrait painter in that city and did likenesses of the three successive Popes, Urban VIII, Innocent X and Alexander VII. By 1657 he had achieved such celebrity that he was summoned by the King to return to France, where he continued his successful career as a portraitist. In 1690 he became a member of the Academy with full honors, a position he had refused to accept until the death of his rival, LeBrun. He died in 1695.

Written and submitted by Jean Ershler Schatz, artist and researcher from Laguna Woods, California.
