(b. ca. 1420, Amiens, d. 1489, Valenciennes)


Franco-Flemish manuscript illuminator and painter. In 1449-54 he was at Amiens, where he may have been born, and he was a member of the Tournai guild in 1468, but the greater part of his working life was spent at Valenciennes. He had a great reputation in his day, but no works certainly from his hand survived. The main work attributed to him is the retable of St Bertin (1459, most of it in the Staatliche Museen, Berlin, fragments in the National Gallery, London). His style was very tender, with delicate, almost pastel colouring, and does not belong to the mainstream of either French or Netherlandish art.
