Great Hours of Anne of Brittany

San Juan Evangelista

Saint John Evangelist

Saint John Evangelist is shown sitting on a rock writing the Revelation during his exile on the island of Patmos. Lying open upon his lap is a book of folios covered in writing with gilt, gauffered edges and a red binding. His right hand holds the pen aloft and he looks heavenwards.
