AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF WITH TWO CHARMING MINIATURES OF MALE SAINTS, FROM A FINE BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN
Bruges, ca. 1465. 181 x 127 mm. (7 1/8 x 5"). Single column, 16 lines of text (17 on verso) in a very careful, attractive gothic book hand. Rubrics in pink (or faded red), two two-line initials in blue, magenta, and burnished gold, three lines with undulating line fillers in blue and gold, both sides of the leaf with a three-quarter panel border incorporating foliage, blossoms, and ivy leaves on hairline stems, the vertical part of this frame with a bar border composed of colors and burnished gold terminating at top and bottom in colorful acanthus leaves, and WITH TWO SMALL BUT VERY PLEASING MINIATURE PAINTINGS, SAINT STEPHEN ON THE RECTO AND SAINT LAWRENCE ON THE VERSO. IN ESPECIALLY FINE CONDITION, the paint without any perceptible erosion and the leaf entirely fresh and clean. This leaf is characteristic work from the circle of Willem Vrelant, the leading purveyor of books of private devotion in Bruges during the third quarter of the 15th century. His leading position among Flemish illuminators of the time is indicated by the considerable number of manuscripts illustrated in his manner by other miniaturists both in Bruges and in nearby cities in Flanders. The illuminator of our Book of Hours shows a number of distinctive stylistic traits. Among these are a preference for boldly patterned cloth backdrops, tessellated flooring, landscapes filled with stylized bushes and trees, and persisting prominent architectural constructions that frame the subject, frequently in a corner (in these leaves, it is a waist-high outdoor wall or an indoor feature resembling wainscoting) … [Click Below for Full Description]

AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF WITH TWO CHARMING MINIATURES OF FEMALE SAINTS, FROM A FINE BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN
Bruges, ca, 1465. 181 x 127 mm (7 1/8 x 5"). Single column, 16 lines of text (17 on verso) in an attractive gothic book hand. Rubrics in pink, two two-line initials in blue, magenta, and burnished gold, undulating line fillers in blue and gold, BOTH SIDES OF THE LEAF WITH THREE-QUARTER PANEL BORDERS incorporating foliage, blossoms, and ivy leaves on hairline stems, the vertical part of this frame with a bar border of colors and burnished gold terminating at top and bottom in colorful acanthus leaves, and WITH TWO SMALL BUT CHARMING MINIATURE PAINTINGS, SAINT MARGARET ON THE RECTO AND SAINT BARBARA ON THE VERSO. Areas of paint loss in Barbara's garment, front portion of Margaret's dragon somewhat blurred, otherwise fine, the gold especially bright and the margins very ample. In this delightful depiction of Saint Margaret, the young saint demurely cocks her head and clasps her hands in prayer, completely unruffled by the experience of having just burst from the side of the dragon who had dared to swallow her, and who still mouths her blue robe. The dragon, although serpentine as to his tail and back, seems to have been modeled on a fat orange cat. Margaret of Antioch was one of the most enduringly popular saints, invoked by women in childbirth with the hope that their newborn would issue as painlessly from the womb as Margaret did from the dragon. Barbara, on the reverse, is also a popular Christian heroine who, like Margaret, suffered for her decision to choose virginity over marriage. The tower in which her father imprisoned her in a vain attempt to make her change … [Click Below for Full Description]
