Bellange, Jacques de

(ca. 1575-1616)
   painter, engraver
   Born probably near Nancy, Jacques de Bellange was a popular artist, many of whose paintings, notably portraits and decorative works that he produced for the ducal palace at Nancy while he was in the service of Charles III of Lorraine (1602-16), have disappeared. But his engravings and sometimes lightly retouched drawings reveal a personal talent of mystical and strange inspiration, which is often sensual. The elongated forms, studied poses, and tension and elegance of his drawing are related to Florentine mannerism and the Fontainebleau school, which he seems to have continued.
