PAINTING
 



Pucelle Jean

Altichiero da Zevio
 
 

Pucelle Jean

( fl c. 1319–34).

French illuminator. He is a controversial figure in 14th-century manuscript painting since his individual role in works attributed to him and his circle has not yet been fully defined. The manuscripts associated with him, however, are among the most important produced in this period, displaying an innovative approach to three-dimensional space, derived from Italian painting. This is thought to have been influential in manuscript and monumental painting, applied arts and sculpture.

Altichiero da Zevio

( fl 1369; d before 10 April 1393).

Italian painter, veronese scool. He was one of the most important northern Italian painters of the 14th century. His style is characterized by an interest in the depiction of space and volume and by a preference for soft colours bathed in suffused light. His narrative paintings have a solemnity and grandeur that is mitigated by the lively realism and animation of the figures, convincingly integrated into settings of architectural complexity.
