JEAN DE BEAUMETZ (b. ca. 1335, Beaumetz-les-Loges, d. 1396, Dijon) Nationality : Flemish
Franco-Flemish painter. He was first recorded living in Arras, where by 1360 he had married and was receiving rents. In June 1361 Beaumetz was granted residency in Valenciennes, and by August he had painted a statue (destroyed) that had been restored by the sculptor Andre Beauneveu for the aldermen's hall. In 1371 Beaumetz was in Paris carrying out unspecified works for Philip the Bold, Duke of Burgundy. The Duke had sent him to Burgundy by 1375, and by April 1376 he was named ducal painter to replace Jean d'Arbois.
