Book of Hours


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This Flemish Book of Hours was produced between 1470 and 1480, most likely in either western Flanders or northern France, and probably for an ecclesiastical patron. The significant number of saints in the calendar affiliated with the diocese of Thérouanne, and more broadly northwestern Flanders, may indicate the region of production. The twenty-three full-page polychrome miniatures and six historiated initials show an influence of Simon Marmion, who was active at Valenciennes in the second half of the fifteenth century, and possibly Colin of Amiens, who was active in Paris and Tournai during the same period.
