Breviary


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This Breviary was created ca. 1460-70 in the manner of the followers of Willem Vrelant. Featuring a calendar for monastic use, this book exhibits affiliations with St. Vaast in Arras. Further, a Franciscan association is indicated by additions to the calendar and its decoration. The breviary was owned in Belgium sometime in the sixteenth century (a possible contemporary expunged ink inscription can be found at the foot of fol. 9r). It was rebound sometime in the early eighteenth century and is connected to Ludwig Rosenthal, ca. 1900.
