Prayer Book (Compilation)


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This Prayer Book, ca. 1500, is a compilation of several texts from at least five different hands, with the miniatures featuring several hands as well. The illusionistic borders with exceptional motifs are of particular note. Borders towards the beginning of the book appear to be by a different artist, as later groups of borders differ in both design and color, with smaller motifs, less crowding, blossoming red carnations and lilies, and some amusing drolleries (fol. 57r-v).
