Jean Fouquet or Jehan Fouquet (1420 - 1481) was the most important French painter of the 15th century, a master of both panel painting and manuscript illumination, and the apparent inventor of the portrait miniature. Also referred to as Souquet, Jean's supreme excellence as an illuminator, the exquisite precision in the rendering of the finest detail, and his power of clear characterization in work on this minute scale, have long since procured him an eminent position in the art of his country. Far more numerous are his illuminated books and miniatures. His self-portrait miniature is one of the earliest sole self-portrait surviving in Western art.
This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
