Book of Hours of Louis of Orleans

This extraordinary book of hours, created around 1490, is the work of the master painter Jean Colombe and his atelier. The illuminations in this tiny manuscript are quite exceptional. The elaborate layout of its illustrations with sumptuous floral margins, especially in the biblical cycle, is a rare trait in most books of hours. The marginalia is often divided into sections with grotesques, birds, animals and other motifs.

This book features every single miniature from the codex together with their iconographic and stylistic analysis.
