Gerard Audran 1693 Cupola at Val De Grace Engraving

Engraved by Gérard Audran (1640-1703), this engraving was executed in 1693 and was based on the fresco, La gloire des Bienheureux, by Pierre Mignard (1612-1695) designed for the church of the Val de Grace, Paris. This engraving would have been the centre of the ceiling with other prints depicting the outer parts of the ceiling designed to fit around it. The church was founded by Anne of Austria in 1621.

Pierre Mignard, was born in 1612 at Troyes, France, and was also called 'Le Romain'. In 1630, Mignard left France for Italy where he soon gained a reputation as a painter which brought him to the attention of Louis XIV. When he returned to France, he pitted himself against the head of the Academy, Charles Le Brun. Upon Le Brun's death in 1690, Mignard succeeded him to all of his posts; however, he was to die shortly thereafter in 1695.

Gérard Audran was born in Lyon in 1640. He went to Paris and gained a reputation as an engraver, amongst others engraving works by Le Brun. In 1667 went to Rome for three years before being recalled to Paris by Louis XIV. In 1681 he was admitted to the Royal Academy and he died in 1703.
