(active c.1480–c.1500). French or Netherlandish painter, named after a triptych of the Madonna and Child with Saints and Donors (c.1498) in Moulins Cathedral. The style of this work is highly distinctive, and has enabled a considerable oeuvre to be built up around it. The Master of Moulins's sculptural precision of form (recalling Fouquet), the poise of his figures, his brilliant palette, the harmony of his compositions, and his taste for splendid and meticulous details make him one of the outstanding painters of his period in northern Europe.
