Charles Claude Dauphin or Dofin, called in Italian Delfino (1615/1620 – 1677), a French painter of historical subjects and portraits, was the son of Olivier Dauphin.


Biography

He was born in Nancy, Lorraine. By about 1640, he had joined in Paris the studio of Simon Vouet. There he works alongside F. Tortebat and M. Dorigny. In 1647, he married in Paris. When Vouet died in 1649, his studio dispersed.[1] Dauphin went to Turin about the year 1652, and worked there for the Prince of Carignano. He was also employed in local churches. In the church of San Carlo is an altar-piece by him, described by Lanzi as a most ludicrous composition. He died in 1677 in Turin.
