LA HIRE Laurent de ( February 27 , 1606 - December 28 , 1656)

Laurent de La Hyre ( February 27 , 1606 - December 28 , 1656 ) was a French Baroque painter , born in Paris .

He became a pupil of Jean-Baptiste Lallemand and studied the works of Primaticcio at Fontainebleau , but never visited Italy . La Hyre is associated with the transitional period before the introduction of the French Baroque by Simon Vouet .

His picture of Pope Nicholas V opening the crypt in which he discovers the corpse of St. Francis of Assisi standing (located at the Louvre ) was executed in 1630 for the Capuchin friars of the Marais ; its gravity and sobriety seems to have been influential for the next generation of French painters, particularly Eustache Le Sueur . The Louvre contains eight other works, and paintings by La Hyre are in the museums of Strasburg , Rouen and Le Mans .Laurent de La Hyre: Perspective (drawing).

His drawings, of which the British Museum possesses a fine example, Presentation of the Virgin in the Temple , are treated as seriously as his paintings, and sometimes show simplicity and dignity of effect. The example of the Capuchins, for whom he executed several other works in Paris , Rouen and F¨¦camp, was followed by the goldsmith's company, for whom he produced in 1635 St. Peter healing the Sick (Louvre) and the Conversion of St Paul in 1637. In 1646, with eleven other artists, he founded the French Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture .

Richelieu called La Hyre to the Palais Royal; Pierre S¨¦guier , G¨¦d¨¦on Tallemant des R¨¦aux and many others entrusted him with important works of decoration; for the Gobelins he designed a series of large compositions. La Hyre painted also a great number of portraits, and in 1654 united in one work for the town-hall of Paris those of the principal dignitaries of the municipality.
