The Adoration of the Magi

Printmaking at Fontainebleau flourished briefly during the 1540s and seems to have stopped altogether by 1547. Jean Mignon was one of the four major etchers whose works are most closely associated with the workshop there. Almost all of Mignon's prints reproduce drawings by Luca Penni (1500/4-1557), an Italian painter active at the chateau. The elegantly elongated figures reflect the influence of Italian Mannerists, especially Parmigianino.
