Book of Hours


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description This Book of Hours was created ca. 1470 in Bruges by a follower of Willem Vrelant. The manuscript contains eleven extant large miniatures and one small miniature, which are representative of the standard style established by Willem Vrelant. Collects following the Office of the Dead are for a mother, father, deceased male, and a female suppliant, which offers insight into the book's use.
