Life of JEAN JUSTE


 Advertisements

 
  Jean Juste (Giovanni Giusto), French sculptor of Italian origin. Giovanni Giusto, together with his brother Antonio Giusto (1479-1519) came to France from Italy in 1504 or 1505 and settled in Tours. They changed their name to Juste and formed a dynasty of sculptors lasting till after the middle of the 16th century. Antonio is known to have revisited Italy between 1508 and 1516, during which period he owned a house in Carrara where Michelangelo sometimes stayed when supervising the quarrying of marble. He may therefore have brought back information about artistic events in Italy, thus introducing certain influences from Italy which appear in the later French sculpture of the Juste family.
  The first work which can be connected with the family is the tomb of Thomas James in the cathedral of Dol, finished in 1507, which is an early example of Italian decoration in France. The most important work of the Juste brothers is the tomb of Louis XII at Saint-Denis.
