Sueur, Eustache Le

Sueur, Eustache Le one of the most celebrated of French painters, was born in 1617, and after studying with his father, a sculptor, was placed in the school of Simon Vouet at Paris. He soon excelled his master, and adopted a style which is noted for its simplicity and severity. He has been termed by his admirers the French Raphael; but he was far behind that great master in every respect. He died in 1655. He painted the celebrated series of St. Bruno, twenty-two large pictures on wood, in the cloister of the Carthusians at Paris, before his thirtieth year: — St. Paul Preaching at Ephesus: The Gentiles Burning their Prescribed Book (1649), engraved by Picart and Massard: — Paul Healing the Sick: — Martyrdoms of St. Laurence and St. Protais, both engraved by Gerard Audran. He painted many other celebrated pictures, as, Christ Scourged: — Christ with Martha and Mary: — The Presentation in the Temple: — The Histories of St. Martin and St. Benedict.
