Life of CHARLES HOYAU


 Advertisements

 
  French sculptor. Information about his life is scarce. The date and place of his birth is not known. He died probably in 1644, the year when his wife Isabelle Prhoust was declared as widow.
  The rare mentions of his artistic activity relate to only one short interval between 1630, when he carried out a series of sculptures for the convent Minimes du Plessis-lès-Tours (of which two Evangelists are preserved), and 1635 when the Sepulchre in the church of Marolles-les-Braults was commissioned from him.
  In the cathedral of Le Mans he succeeded Gervais I Delabarre in the decoration of the jube. Two sculptures here, the sitting Virgin (Mater Dolorosa) and St Cecilia bear his signature. He is also credited with a tomb of seven highly studied scenic figures, originally in the Franciscan monastery, now in the cathedral of Le Mans.
