(b ?nr Troyes, fl 1467–99; dbefore 1508). French illuminator. There are numerous mentions of him in the accounts of René, Duke of Anjou, between 1467 and 1480. In 1476 René provided Trubert with funds for a journey to Rome and two years later conferred on him the title of Valet de Chambre, an office he had granted to only one other painter, Barthélemy d’Eyck. Trubert lived mainly in Provence and seems to have continued working there after René's death in 1480. By 1486 he was receiving gifts from René's grandson, René II, Duke of Lorraine, and from 1491 until 1499 he was part of the Duke's household in Lorraine. In documents of 1508 he is mentioned as dead.
