LE ROUX, Roullant
(active 1508, d. 1527, Rouen)

Tomb of the Amboise Cardinals

begun 1515
Cathedral, Rouen

Jacques and Roullant Le Roux were the architects of the Cathedral in Rouen. The tomb of the two cardinals of the Amboise family in the Cathedral was begun in 1515 under the direction and probably after the design of Roullant. The design derives from the Late Gothic form, with an altar-tomb set in a niche, but in this case the recumbent figure hase been replaced by a kneeling figure.
