The Master of Jean de Mandeville, an anonymous French illuminator, is thus known for his work on a manuscript of Mandeville's Travels now in the Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris. A prolific court artist, he worked in France in the circle of King John the Good and King Charles V from around 1350 to 1370. He often painted the costumes of his slight figures in grisaille and rendered the figures' faces and hands in flesh tones with touches of color. Many Parisian illuminators of the day shared this partially monochrome style.
