French, 15th century, male.

Active from 1420 to 1440.

Illuminator.

The chief work of this miniaturist gives him the name by which he is known, the Rohan Hours (Les Grandes Heures de Rohan). The book of hours dates from the second quarter of the 15th century. Now in the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris, it is illustrated with what are perhaps the most remarkable miniatures of the French 15th century.
