Pierre Parrocel

Parrocel Drawing - A Seated Woman by Pierre Parrocel

A Seated Woman

Pierre Parrocel (1664–1739) was a French painter of the late-Baroque period.

He was born in Avignon to a large family of artists, including his uncle Joseph Parrocel and his father, Louis Parrocel. He was first instructed by his uncle, and then trained with Carlo Maratti in Rome, and in 1730 became a member of the Accademia di San Luca there. His principal work, as a painter, was in the gallery of the Hôtel de Noailles at St. Germain-en-Laye, where he represented the history of Tobit in thirteen pictures. He also painted a Coronation of the Virgin' in the church of St. Mary at Marseilles, He also etched and engraved in a style analogous to that of A. Rivalz ; but he was not equally successful with the graver. Of the fourteen etchings left by him, The Triumph of Aphrodite is perhaps the most noteworthy.

These paintings, numbering sixteen, had been commissioned by the Due de Noailles. A part had been executed at Avignon, the other at the Duke's house in St-Germain-en-Laye.52 Etienne Parrocel in his book The Annals of Painting recounts the circumstances in which the acquisition of these paintings was made by the merchant Louis-Joseph Denis Borély who exhibited them in his castle where is now the Museum of Decorative Arts, Earthenware and Fashion in Marseille. Louis XV hunting in the forest of Saint-Germain-en-Laye is hosted by the Duke of Noailles. The King did not appreciate these works, and said to his host: "Do you know, Monsieur le Duc, that you have very unpleasant pictures here? "53. In a zealous courtier the collector puts his paintings on sale after ordering Boucher a more amiable series. Louis-Joseph Denis Borély, passing through Paris, bought it in 1770 for the price of 12,000 livres, which had cost the Duke de Noailles 30,000.
