HUGUET, Jaume
(b. ca. 1415, Valls, d. 1492, Barcelona)

Biography

Catalan painter, the most prominent figure in the Catalan School during the second part of the 15th century. Huguet is thought to have settled in Barcelona about 1448. He continued the Catalan tradition of Bernat Martorell, but was highly individual in his characterization. His studio produced many sumptuous composite altarpieces of the type that became typical in Spanish art and his work exercised a wide influence on the painting of Catalonia and Aragón.
