Coypel, Antoine a French painter, son and scholar of Noel, was born in Paris in 1661. He went to Rome when quite young, and studied the works of Raphael, Michael Angelo, and the Caracci. At the age of fifteen he returned to Paris with a very superficial knowledge of his profession. He was only nineteen when he painted his Assumption, for the Church of Notre Dame, and at twenty he was elected a royal academician. He was appointed painter to the king in 1715. His principal works are at Paris. They are Christ Curing the Blind, at the Carthusian convent; Christ among the Doctors; and The Assumption, in the Church of Notre Dame. He died in 1722.
