RANC Jean (b. 1674, Montpellier, d. 1735, Madrid) Nationality : French

French painter. The son of a painter of modest ability, Jean Ranc was trained in Paris by Hyacinthe Rigaud, the principal portraitist at the Court of Louis XIV. Rigaud himself had been a pupil of Jean's father, Antoine Ranc, and in 1715 Jean had married a niece of his master. Rigaud's flamboyant style proved to be a major influence on the portrait painters of the 18th century, and Ranc was his most competent pupil and closest disciple. He was received as an Academician in 1703 with portraits of Nicolas de Plattenberg and Francois Verdier, both now in Versailles, and was listed in the records of the Academy as a portraitist until his death.
