Enguerrand Quarton (1420-1466) was a French painter and manuscript illuminator whose few surviving works are among the first masterpieces of a distinctively French style, very different from either Italian or Early Netherlandish painting. Six paintings by him are documented, of which only two survive, and in addition the Louvre now follows most art historians in giving him the famous Avignon Pieta. His two documented works are the remarkable Coronation of the Virgin (1453-54) and The Virgin of Mercy (1452). Two smaller altarpieces are also attributed to him.   more from wikipedia »
