Footnotes

  • Baudesson's habit of not signing his works, coupled with his subsequent confusion with such contemporaries as Monnoyer, Fontenay, Arellano, Nuzzi and his own son, François, have since the 18th century left many of his paintings unrecognised which in turn has obscured his once high stature. His prestige in Paris on his return in 1666 from a long sojourn in Italy was unrivalled, André Félibien writing shortly after that 'la père Zegre [Daniel Seghers], Mario de' Fiori [Nuzzi], Baudesson will always have a reputation for flowers.'
