Philippe De Champaigne’s works (1602-1674)
Philippe de Champaigne born in a poor, young family he refuses to integrate the workshop of Rubens into Antwerp. It is a pupil of Fouquieres, painter landscape designer in Brussels. It wishes to visit Rome but stops in Paris in 1621, is fixed at the Latin Quarter with the College of Laon where it binds friendship with Nicolas Poussin and works at the Manieriste S Georges Lallemand and Nicolas Duchesne, of which he marries the girl in 1628. It leaves the workshop of Lallemand about 1625 and starts to work for its account. Having regained Brussels he is pointed out one year later by Claude Maugis, intendant of the buildings of Marie de Medicis to take part in the decoration of the Palais of Luxembourg, whose showpieces are a series of large tables reporting the life of the silent partner by Rubens. Champaigne painted there several frescos of the ceilings.
