He was the son of the goldsmith Jan Pietersz. van den Eeckhout and ‘a great friend’ as well as a pupil of Rembrandt, according to Houbraken, who commented that van den Eeckhout painted in the style of his master throughout his career.

Painter, engraver.

Provencal School.

Laurent Fauchier, the son of a goldsmith, excelled in portraiture. This is all the more surprising because he was self-taught.

In spite of the offers made to him, Fauchier refused to appear at court. He died at the age of 29, the victim of overwork, whilst painting Madame de Forbin, known under the name of the ...
