Jean Clouet (French, about 1485/90 - about 1540/41)
Clouet became chief painter to the French court and was required to produce a wide variety of works, including elegant, meticulously detailed royal portraits. In this respect he may have been following an established family tradition, for his father was probably painter to the Duke of Burgundy. The family was Flemish in origin and Clouet worked in Tours before arriving in Paris. As principal painter to Francis I, he was involved in many decorative ceremonial projects.
