Francois Clouet (French, about 1510 - 1572)
From a family of Flemish draughtsmen and painters based in France, Clouet is believed to have been born in Tours. He was taught by his artist father Jean Clouet, and both artists served as court painters. François Clouet took up this role from 1541. Clouet was a highly sought after portraitist for royalty and nobility and was one of the leading painters in Renaissance France.
