(active early 15th century).
Franco-Flemish manuscript illuminator, active in Paris, named after a Book of Hours (Musée Jacquemart-André, Paris) done for Jean II le Meingre Boucicaut (1365–1421), Marshal of France. This manuscript, which probably dates from about 1410, is a magnificent example of the International Gothic style, but in its accomplished handling of space and aerial perspective and its delightful genre detail it heralds the achievements of the 15th-century Netherlandish School. Many other manuscripts have been attributed to the workshop of the Boucicaut Master, who has been tentatively identified with Jacques Coene, an artist with a high contemporary reputation but by whom no documented works are known.
