Eustache Le Sueur

Le Sueur, Eustache (zhäN fräNswäˈ ləsüörˈ) [key], 1616–55, French painter. He was a disciple of Vouet and a founding member of the Académie royale (1648). In his short life he painted many decorative works for apartments in the Louvre and for churches and convents. His work was greatly influenced by that of Poussin, whom he rivaled in popularity for a time. The Louvre contains his St. Paul Preaching at Ephesus and episodes from the Life of St. Bruno.
