Jean Tassel,
The Virgin and Child.

Oil on canvas.

97cm by 74cm.

Jean Tassel was born in 1608 in Langres, in the Champagne region of France, where he died in 1667. He came from a family of artists and was a pupil of his father. He spent some time in Rome where he painted a number of low life genre scenes, but the most important influence upon his later work was that of the Romano-Bolognese school, which is apparent in this painting.
