Fouquet, Jean (c.1420-80) and Studio; French. Medium: vellum. Date: 15th Century. Enluminure de Jean Fouquet et Atelier, Tours; from the French translation of the work of Flavius Josephus (c.37-100 AD); scenes from the life of Joseph; Joseph's mother, Rachel, says goodbye to her son setting out for work; his brothers plotting to kill him, throwing him in to a well, then changing their mind and selling him into slavery to the Ishmaelites; the artist of this image (and of 27702) seems different from the other miniatures of the 'Antiquites Judaiques'; the manuscript borders are probably made by another artist, called today the 'Master of the Belles Heures'; Provenance: Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris, France. Photographic Rights The Bridgeman Art Library.
