BEAUNEVEU Andre (b. ca. 1330, Valenciennes, d. 1402, Bourges) Nationality : French
French sculptor and illuminator from Valenciennes, who worked for the French court, Louis de Male, Count of Flanders, and the Duc de Berry. Four of the royal effigies in Saint-Denis came from his workshop (Philip VI, John II, Charles V and his queen). The only illuminations certainly by him are the Prophets and Apostles of the Duc de Berry's Psalter (Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris, 1380-85). Beauneveu's style in sculpture and painting looked forward to the general northern European trend towards naturalism in the 15th century.
