Dreux Jean, also known by the name Dreux Bachoyer, was born in Paris, but he immigrated to Flanders before beginning his artistic career, perhaps because of the English occupation of Paris during the Hundred Years War. Philip the Good, Duke of Burgundy, hired him starting in 1448 to produce manuscripts, and he remained in the duke’s service as court illuminator until 1454. Jean briefly lived in Bruges, where the commercial opportunities for an independent illuminator were greater, but he soon returned to Brussels to serve Philip’s son, Charles the Bold. Dreux Jean is best known for fusing the traditions of contemporary Parisian illumination with the naturalism of Flemish panel painting in his work.
