Jean Pucelle (c. 1300 – 1355) was a Parisian Gothic-era manuscript illuminator, active between 1320 and 1350. His style is characterized by delicate figures rendered in grisaille, accented with touches of color.

Pucelle's most famous work is The Hours of Jeanne d'Evreux, c. 1324–1328. His earliest known work, a breviary, was once owned by Blanche of France.
