Juste family

   family of sculptors descended from the Florentine Giusto Betti
   Antoine Juste (1479-1519) was born in Corbi-gnano, Tuscany, and settled in France in 1504. Among others, he produced the dozen alabaster statues of the apostles for the chapel of Cardinal d'Amboise in the château of Guillon (1508-09) and the bas-reliefs on the mausoleum of louis xii and anne of brittany to be placed in the basilica of Saint-Denis. Jean Juste, or Jean I Juste (14851549), born in san Martino, was the brother of Antoine Juste, with whom he collaborated on the mausoleum of Louis xii, sculpting the kneeling royal figures with a somber and quiet composition, and the other dramatic figures with an uncompromising realism. By its arrangement and the character of its decoration, this mausoleum was the first monumental tomb of the French Renaissance. Juste de Juste (1505-59), born in Tours, was the son of Antoine Juste and nephew of Jean i Juste, with whom he collaborated and produced the statues of Vertus and Apôtres for the mausoleum of Louis xii. Named in 1529 sculptor to King francis i, he participated in the decoration of the Grande Gallerie in the château of Fontainebleau. Jean Juste, or Jean II Juste (1510-79), born in Tours, was the son of Jean i Juste, with whom he collaborated on many works. He also carved several tombs, notably that of Guy d'Espinay. The Juste family contributed to the monumental concepts of the italian Renaissance.
