Homespun realism characterizes this Book of Hours from the southern Netherlands. Painted by three artists, the manuscript is in fine condition with full-page pictures with generous margins and full-page pictures introducing the main textual sections. A Dutch-influenced artist painted one miniature and a historiated initial. A Flemish artist contributed the other full-page pictures. And, the animated and charming historiated initials are by a third hand.
