« Mysteres » et « joyeusetés » : les peintres de Lyon autour de 1500

Abstract : To sketch the portrait of the painters’ community of Lyon, between the beginning of the reign of Louis XI (1461) and the crisis of the end of 1520s, was the presupposition of this research. The appeal to sources (accounts, taxes and from ecclesiastic origin) showed itself essential to the study of painters and to the approach of social history of the art, allowing the location of them, their workshops, the some filiations, their place finally (fortune and social position) in the city. But beyond this first approach, the study of the patrons, major characters of the artistic production, allowed to define more finely the face of the pictorial practice of Lyon. Between notables, consuls, Consulate, clerics and kings, the activities of command in the city underlined the absence of big construction sites and big orders in these decades of increasing prosperity. They are thus the festivals, in the front row of which the royal and solemn entries, which mobilize the economic, literary and obviously artistic strengths. The study of the protagonists of these royal and urban ceremonies as spread themes allows to characterize in a more precise way the articulation between artists, patrons and city as to deepen the knowledge on the practice of the painters, indeed better known by this way.
