French painter active mainly in Italy during the late Baroque and early Neoclassic periods (the middle term between Poussin and David), known for his works with religious thematic (for example his Mass of St. Basil), for his incisive portraiture (Pope Benedict XIV, Cardinal Valenti Gonzaga), as well as for his genre pictures (where his true relation to the modern era comes out - wiki).
