Clouet, Jean (South Netherlandish painter, born ca. 1485, died 1540 or 1541, active in France)

Note: His birth date is uncertain, but he may have been active in France before the death of Louis XII in 1515, and he may have worked for that King. From 1516 his name appears almost annually in the royal accounts; he held the position of 'painctre et varlet de chambre' to Francis I. He was never a naturalized Frenchman. His wife was Jehanne Boucault, the daughter of a Tours goldsmith. Clouet may have settled in Paris in 1525, but he was certainly living in the city from 1527. Possibly Clouet worked regularly as a painter of religious or history pictures, although his works are not known today. He is held as the virtual founder of the tradition of portraiture in Renaissance France based on surviving drawings in black and red chalk. HIs drawings transcend forerunners in depiction of personality, formal conception, and plasticity of modelling, achieved with a diagonal hatching that softens contours.
