He is known to have been in Arles in 1634, where he painted the altarpiece Saint Laurent condamné au supplice and Assomption de la Vierge for local churches. Between 1638 and 1642, he lived in Aix-en-Provence, where he painted another Assumption of the Virgin. He returned to Arles in 1642, and divided his activities between there and Avignon, where he was buried in St Peter's church on February 21, 1650.
