Description
With 24 color reproductions and a half-dozen additional figures, this compact catalog from the Walters Art Museum discusses the miniature paintings and drawings found in a group of magnificently illuminated Books of Hours produced in France at the time of François I (1494–1547). These enigmatic images challenge long-held notions of the relationship between the words of the prayers and their illustrations, while the brief essays here explore artistic patronage at the French court during a time when controversies over humanism, reformation, and orthodoxy shaped the intellectual life of discerning patrons.
