Dominican Psalter

Description Provenance Credit
Description This small psalter was made in Utrecht, Netherlands in the second half of the fifteenth century. The parchment is of fine quality, and the simplicity of its illumination, consisting of eight large foliate initials marking the ferial divisions of the Psalms, is appropriately restrained. References to St. Dominic in the calendar and litany indicate it was for Dominican use.
Provenance Utrecht, Netherlands, ca. 1455-1500 [1]. Acquired by Henry Walters, Baltimore; by bequest to Walters Art Museum, 1931. [1] must postdate 1455 due to inclusion of Vincent Ferrar in calendar, made for Dominican use indicated by double invocation for Dominic in litany and suffrages
