Francisque Millet

1642 - 1679

Francisque Millet was born in Antwerp but moved to Paris in 1659 and settled there. He is said to have visited Holland and England. There appear to be no acceptably signed pictures by him, but several are virtually authenticated by early engravings.

He painted chiefly landscapes, somewhat in the style of Nicolas Poussin. His real name was Jean-Fran├žois, but he was usually known as Francisque.
