COURT, Jean de
(active 1555-1585)

Biography

The Limoges enamellers signing 'Jean de Court' and 'Jean Court dit Vigier' are probably the same person, and probably identical with the court painter Jean de Court who was employed by the French royal court in 1558 and worked for Mary Stuart in 1562. This Jean de Court replaced François Clouet as peintre du roi in 1572 and is last recorded in 1585. No signed paintings by him are known.
