Paul Duqueylar, a French historical painter, born at Digne in 1771, was a scholar of David. Most of the subjects painted by him are taken from the classic poets and ancient historians, and are of an elevated character. The Judgment of Minos, and Belisarius, both painted at Rome in 1804, are described by Kotzebue in his Souvenirs d'ltalie. He died in 1845.
