(b. 1667, Caen, d. 1752, Caen)


French painter. He began his artistic training with the Carmelite Lucas Delahaye, but a decisive influence on his future development was meeting Bon Boullogne, whom Tournières accommodated in his studio in Paris. There Tournières made copies of paintings of the Dutch School. He also worked as a copyist in the studio of France's most successful contemporary portrait painter, Hyacinthe Rigaud.
