Book of Hours


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description This pocket-size Book of Hours, ca. 1500, was completed in the style of the Master of the Prayerbooks and his associates. This manuscript was likely completed in Bruges, where these artists seem to have been centered. The style of illumination, which can be seen in the twelve extant miniatures, borders, historiated initials, and even drolleries, exhibits a skilled precision required of painters who were tasked with completing the illumination of books this size.
