The dozens of works that survive from Jean Bourdichon’s long career as a painter and illuminator make him an important test case in the study of artistic practice and the transmission of iconographical motifs at the end of the Middle Ages. While it has long been assumed that he must have maintained a large workshop, the specifics of his collaboration with other artists have gone largely uninvestigated. This paper, in presenting a diachronic account of the artist’s precise interactions with his colleagues, aims to provide a more accurate explanation of how an official “peintre du roy” could have maintained influence over commercial circles of production, and how his particular iconographies might have been disseminated outside of a workshop setting.
