Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Jean Pichore was one of many versatile artists who did not see the print revolution as a threat to their work as manuscript illuminators but rather embraced the opportunity to expand their skills. Pichore was an admired and highly sought-after artist whose deftness with a brush, demonstrated here, was equaled by his sense of design for the printed page.
