THE DUNOIS MASTER
The Dunois Master was the assistant of the Bedford Master and then his successor as the dominant figure in Parisian illumination from about 1435. His soft painterly style derives from that of the Bedford Master and he also inherited the older Master's stock of compositional patterns. He built on this legacy, showing great compositional inventiveness in both secular manuscripts and devotional books, like the Hours of the Count of Dunois from which he was named (London, BL. Ms Yates Thompson 3). He may be identifiable with Jean Haincelin, if the Lancelot from which lot 12 comes and the Guiron le Courtois in Paris (BnF, mss fr. 356-357) are indeed those paid for by Prigent de Coëtivy in 1444. Prigent's Book of Hours (Dublin, Chester-Beatty Library, W 82) was certainly by the Dunois Master, who received commissions from some of the greatest bibliophiles of the time.
