La Hire, Laurent de

Laurent de La Hire (both: lōräN´ də lä ēr), 1606–56, French painter. He produced many portraits and historical paintings, a few romantic landscapes, important decorative works for Richelieu, Pierre Séguier, and others, and tapestry designs for the Gobelins. His paintings reflect the influence of Vouet, Poussin, and Claude. His Pope Nicolas V before St. Francis (1630) and St. Peter Healing the Sick are both in the Louvre.
