Loyset Liédet (1420-1479), was an early Netherlandish miniaturist and illuminator.

Biography[edit]

Liédet was a prolific artist coming from Hesdin in Artois. Between 1454 and 1460 he worked in Hesdin where he produced 55 thumbnails for La Fleur des Histoires by Jean Mansel, commissioned by Philip the Good of the House of Valois-Burgundy. He also did some work for Charles the Bold. In his early work, he was influenced by Simon Marmion. After 1467 he was found in Bruges, where he was a member of the Guild of Saint Luke listed as an illuminator. In all probability he continued to work in Bruges until 1479. 'Death Loyset Liédet' was formerly located in 1479 to the date of the last entry in the archives in Bruges. However recent research by Dominique Vanwijnsberghe in the archives of Lille shows that Liédet and his brother Huchon (or Husson) were still listed in the archives of that city in 1483 and 1484.
