Master of the Triptych of Louis XII
French, active late 15th - early 16th century
Related Content

The Master of the Triptych of Louis XII was active toward the close of the fifteenth century and during the first fifteen years of the sixteenth. His pseudonym comes from a work of exceptional standing: a triptych made of nine plaques, the wings of which portray Louis XII, king of France (ruled 1498-1515) and Anne de Bretagne, whom he married in 1499. About twenty-six enamels may be attributed to the master and his workshop. Their style reflects that of painters of the Loire school: the Master of Moulins and the illuminator Jean Bourdichon.
