Jaume Huguet
 

(b Valls, c. 1415; d Barcelona, before 4 May 1492).

Spanish painter. He is thought to have spent time in Saragossa in his youth (c. 1435–45), and he subsequently worked in Tarragona before establishing himself in Barcelona in 1448. He must, however, have had contact with painting from Barcelona before he moved there, because the centre panel of an early retable dedicated to the Virgin (Barcelona, Mus. A. Catalunya) from Vallmoll, near Tarragona, shows his awareness of the style of Bernat Martorell in the profiles of the two foreground angels, and of Lluís Dalmau’s Virgin of the Councillors (Barcelona, Mus. A. Catalunya) in the illusionistic painting of the Virgin’s jewel-trimmed garments. In other early works, such as the Annunciation and Crucifixion from a small retable (Vic, Mus. Episc.), Huguet demonstrated an interest in atmospheric perspective, but he abandoned this in his later works.
