Etienne Chevalier with St. Stephen (right panel).
Diptych de Moulin. Etienne Chavalier Presented by St. Stephen.
b Right panel.; 93 x 85 cm.
Tempera on wood.
Estienne Chevalier, who came from Melun, was French Ambassador to England in 1445 and six years later became Treasurer to Charles VII of France. He presented the diptych of which this panel forms the left wing, to his native town; on this wing he had himself painted next to his patron saint, Stephen. The saint, wearing a deacon's robe, is holding a book, on which a jagged stone is lying, as a symbol of his martyrdom. The formal architecture in the background is in the Italian Renaissance style showing pilasters with coloured inlaid marble panels between them. On the wall, receding in perspective, the name Estienne Chevalier is inscribed several times.
Style: French Early Renaissance.
School: Early Renaissance.
