The son of the painter René-Antoine Houasse, a disciple of Le Brun, he learned from his father and at the Paris Academy, where he received a full training. He must have spent time in Italy between 1699 and 1704 and subsequently returned to Paris, becoming a member of the Academy in 1707.

He came from a wealthy family. His artistic training remains totally unknown. A document from 1620 already cites him as a painter in Haarlem.

His marriage to Geertje Hendricksdr in Haarlem is documented on 21 May 1617. The couple had two children, Riekje and Claes, the latter of whom became a well-known landscape painter with the na

This Spanish painter active in Madrid at the beginning of the 18th century was heir to the tradition of the Spanish baroque school at a time when it had already lost its earliest figures but continued to exist in the work of a series of painters of lesser quality. Although there were already Italian and French painters working in Philip V's court at his behest, the monarch did not seem to enjoy th

His work, especially his portraits, was powerfully influenced by Velázquez, and their relation allowed him contact with Venetian and Flemish artists whose work was in the Royal Collections around 1665. While still quite young, he p
