Charles Alphonse du Fresnoy (1611 – 16 January 1668), French painter and writer on his art, was born in Paris, son of an apothecary. He was destined for the medical profession, and well educated in Latin and Greek; but, having a natural propensity for the fine arts, he would not apply to his intended vocation, and was allowed to learn the rudiments of design under Perrier and Vouet. At the age of twenty-one he went off to Rome, with no resources; he drew ruins and architectural subjects.

  • Charles-Alphonse Du Fresnoy, né en 1611 à Paris et mort en 1668 fut un peintre, un critique d'art et un poète français. Il fut l'élève de Simon Vouet, et l'ami de Pierre Mignard, avec lequel il visita l'Italie. Le Musée du Louvre possède de cet artiste un Groupe de Naïades et le Musée d'Évreux une Sainte Marguerite foulant aux pieds un dragon. Ces deux compositions ont moins contribué à sa réputation que son poème latin sur la peinture : * De Arte graphica, publié après sa mort par Roger de Piles, Paris, 1668, avec une traduction en prose et des notes estimées. Renou en donna une 2e traduction, en vers français, 1789, et Antoine Rabany une 3e, en 1810. Enfin cet ouvrage a été traduit en vers anglais par John Dryden. (fr)
  • Charles Alphonse Dufresnoy oder Du Fresnoy (* 1611 in Paris; † 16. Januar 1668 in Villiers-Le-Bel) war ein französischer Maler und Mitarbeiter Pierre Mignards. Seine Wirkung auf die Malerei blieb bis ins 19. Jahrhundert ununterbrochen sehr einflussreich. Dufresnoy erlernte sein Handwerk bei Simon Vouet. In seinem Atelier lernte er auch Pierre Mignard kennen, mit dem er sein Leben lang eine enge Freundschaft teilte. Mit 21 Jahren ging er nach Rom, wo er Raffael und die Antike studierte. 1653 bis 1656 folgten Studien in Venedig, wo er sich vor allem mit dem Werk Tizians und anderer großer Maler der Venezianischen Schule beschäftigte. Zwischen 1635 und 1656 schrieb er das lateinische Lehrgedicht De arte graphica über die Malerei. Der Maler, Kunstkritiker und Diplomat Roger de Piles veröffentlichte es 1668, versehen mit Anmerkungen und einer französischen Prosaübersetzung, wenige Monate nach dem Tod Dufresnoys. (de)

He was destined for the medical profession, and well educated in Latin and Greek; but, having a natural propensity for the fine arts, he would not apply to his intended vocation, and was allowed to learn the rudiments of design under Perrier and Vouet. At the age of twenty-one he went off to Rome, with no resources; he drew ruins and architectural subjects. After two years thus spent he re-encountered his old fellow-student Pierre Mignard, and by his aid obtained some amelioration of his professional prospects. He studied Raphael and the antique, went in 1633 to Venice, and in 1656 returned to France. During two years he was now employed in painting altar-pieces in the château du Raincy, landscapes, etc. His death was caused by an attack of apoplexy followed by palsy; he expired at Villiers-le-Bel, near Paris. He never married. His pictorial works are few; they are correct in drawing, with something of the Caracci in design, and of Titian in colouring, but wanting fire and expression, and insufficient to keep his name in any eminent repute. He is remembered now almost entirely as a writer rather than painter. His Latin poem, De arte graphica, was written during his Italian sojourn, and embodied his observations on the art of painting; it may be termed a critical treatise on the practice of the art, with general advice to students. The precepts are sound according to the standard of his time; the poetical merits slender enough. The Latin style is formed chiefly on Lucretius and Horace. This poem was first published by Mignard, and has been translated into several languages. In 1668 it was turned into French by Roger de Piles; Dryden translated the work into English prose; and a rendering into verse by Mason followed, to which Sir Joshua Reynolds added some annotations.

  • Charles Alphonse du Fresnoy of Dufresnoy (Parijs, 1611-Villiers-le-Bel, 16 januari 1668 ) was een Frans historieschilder en schrijver. Meer dan door zijn schilderwerk is Dufresnoy bekend vanwege zijn De Arte Grafica, een theorie over de schilderkunst, aangevuld met praktische adviezen. Het gedicht De Arte Grafica heeft meer dan antiquarische waarde; het was na meer dan een eeuw van belang voor het neoclassicisme in de kunst. (nl)
