His work was noted for the accuracy of drawing and the exquisite finish of details. His father Jean Clouet (1480-1541), was also a miniaturist and painter under the patronage of Francis I of France.

Not Elizabeth Mure of Rowallan. Elizabeth Mure was mistress and then wife of Robert, High Steward of Scotland, and Guardian of Scotland (1338–1341 and from October 1346), who later became King Robert II of Scotland. Elizabeth Mure was said to be born at Rowallan Castle. Elizabeth Mure of Rowallan died before May 1355, and this type of French hood was only worn in the 1500s, and from the 1530s at that.
