Life of JEAN PICHORE


 Advertisements

 
  French illuminator, designer of manuscripts and printed books. He was active in Paris, although Cardinal Georges d Amboise, archbishop of Rouen, was one of his major clients. Therefore, his style had been mistakenly referred to as School of Rouen . Pichore is documented as having worked on two manuscripts, the first volume of Augustine s De civitate Dei of c. 1501/03 (Paris, Bibliothèque Nationale) and the Chants royaux for Louise of Savoy of 1517 (Paris, Bibliothèque Nationale). Pichore managed a large family enterprise that was responsible for the illumination of a great number of classical, secular, and theological texts. He also played an important role in the market for printed books by providing Renaissance designs.
   Characteristic of Pichore and the artists working in his style are heavy figures clothed in voluminous drapery and watercolour-like, transparent landscapes.
