Book of Hours, Marginalia, Walters Manuscript W.427, Folio 131v

This manuscript was created ca. 1500 in Bruges or Ghent, and was influenced by the Master of the Prayerbooks, the Master of the Dresden Prayerbook, and the Master of the David Scenes in the Grimani breviary. It was likely made for a female patron with Franciscan affinity, as suggested by the contents of the calendar. The book is heavily illuminated with nineteen miniatures, marginalia on pages without miniatures, and twenty-four calendar illuminations, the latter including zodiac signs paired with illustrations of the labors of the month. Miniatures show detailed interior spaces with Renaissance architectural elements and proportional figures.
