Quick Reference

(fl 1485; d Avignon, before 17 Jan 1495). French painter. He came from the diocese of Langres and may have been born in Dijon; he was perhaps a member of the family of painters named Changenet who were active there from the mid-15th century. Jean Changenet is documented in Avignon from 1485, and it is clear from the variety and importance of his commissions and the number of his apprentices that he was the most prominent painter there at the end of the 15th century. In 1503 his daughter Michelle married the painter Josse Lieferinxe.
