The Hours of Philip the Bold

Dreux Jean


Dreux Jean, active c. 1430-1467, was Philip the Good’s valet de chambre and illuminator. The Duke entrusted him with numerous additions to the Grandes Heures and with its rebinding in two volumes – responsibilities for which the artist was paid 10 livres and 16 sous in 1451. Dreux Jean painted the miniatures of St Remigius (fol. 238v) and St Anne (fol. 256r), the only two images to include Philip the Good’s devices.
