Socrates Three Quarters To The Right Print by Nicolas Lagneau

Socrates Three Quarters To The Right

Nicolas Lagneau

Nicolas Lagneau (fl c. 1600–50)[1] was a French draftsman noted for his portrait drawings. He was especially interested in grotesque physiognomies, which he drew in meticulous detail either from models or from his imagination.[1] His drawings are usually executed in black and red chalk, sometimes with the addition of blue or yellow gouache.[1] In their heightened realism, and their emphasis on facial expressions, wrinkles, and deformities, Lagneau's portraits reveal the influence of Rembrandt's early works.[1]

Lagneau is not known to have painted. His drawings, which were widely copied and imitated in his time, are plentiful in French and US museums.
