      • Known as: French painter
      • Born: 1522, Sens, France
      • Date of death: 1594, Paris

      Jean Cousin the Younger was a student in his father's studio in Paris. Upon his father's death he took over the studio when he was in his late-30s.

      He achieved the title of master painter early in his career. As well as working in Paris, he journeyed to Sens in 1563 and painted a series of portraits for Charles IX of France as well as decorating the window and sculptures of the chapel of the Château de Fleurigny. Two years later, he worked on a funeral monument for Admiral Chabot; a project that lasted seven years.

      His most important surviving work is the Last Judgement, now in the Louvre. Other noted works include his engraving Moses Showing the Serpent to the People, his stained glass Judgment of Solomon (1586), and his illustrations for Ovid's Metamorphosis.
