Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Jehan Cousin the younger ("le jeune") (ca. 1522–1595) was born in Sens, France around 1522, the son of the famous painter and sculptor Jean Cousin the Elder ca. 1490–ca. 1560) who was often compared to his noted contemporary, Albrecht Dürer. Having trained to become an artist under his father, Jehan le jeune showed as much talent as his father, and their work is nearly indistinguishable even to the expert.

Just before his death, Jehan the elder published his noted work Livre de Perspe (showing 500 of 1179 characters).
