French family of patrons. Among the earliest patrons in this merchant family was Jean Lallemant (d 1494), Receiver General of Normandy, who in 1467 purchased land in Bourges for building an hôtel and possessed a copy of Josephus's Antiquités judaïques (Paris, Bib. Arsenal, MS. 3686) illuminated in 1489 by a minor artist of the school of Rouen. Jean's sons Guillaume Lallemant, Jean Lallemant the elder (d 1533) and Jean Lallemant the younger (d 1548) continued their father's interests, commissioning several works of high quality.
