Pucelle

Pucelle, Jean, c.1300-1355, French manuscript illuminator. Master of a celebrated workshop in Paris during the 1320s, Pucelle produced a masterpiece of illumination and a stylistic landmark in his Hours of Jeanne d'Évreux (c.1325; Cloisters, New York City). This tiny book of hours, commissioned for the Queen of France, was filled with exquisite, restrained drawings, many concerning the life of Louis IX (Saint Louis). Other works with miniature paintings by Pucelle include the Belleville Breviary (Bibliothèque nationale).
