Jacques Blanchard does not have an image.
17th century Painting
(Paris, France, 1600 - 1638, Paris, France)
Blanchard’s style is a very attractive amalgam of a completely French, late Mannerist formation and the influences of an Italian sojourn (1624-28), especially Venetian painting. Traditionally called the “French Titian,” (although really more indebted to Veronese), Blanchard tended to infuse relatively simple, classicizing constructions and with a soft luminosity, tactile paint handling, and sensual appeal. Although a bit formulaic and lacking in intellectual rigor, his works anticipate aspects of French academic painting, from Le Brun through Bougeureau.
