Boullongne, Bon

Boullongne, Bon a Parisian painter, the son of Louis Boullongne the elder, was born in 1649, and studied under his father.

He studied the works of Correggio in Lombardy, and then returned to Paris. In 1677 he was elected a royal academician. In 1702 he painted in fresco the cupola of the chapel of St. Jerome in the Church of the Invalides. One of his best works is the Resurrection of Lazarus, in the Church of the Carthusians. He also etched a Holy Family; St. John Preaching in the Wilderness; and St.Bruno. He died in Paris, May 16, 1717. See Spooner, Biog. Hist. of the Fine Arts, s.v.; Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
