Jean Fouquet

This is quite a staggering find for little me:  Jean Fouquet, a leading painter and miniaturist of the fifteenth century. The image below reminds me so much of Doré’s images of Paradise, with its swirling ranks of angels:


The Enthronement of the Virgin, or The Trinity in its Glory   

This Madonna and Child is also startling.


And, leaving you with the Battle between the Maccabees and the  Bacchides... Happy Hanukkah!
