Illuminated Leaf from Book of Hours

Illuminated Leaf from Book of Hours

Netherlands: circa 1450. A leaf from an illuminated manuscript Book of Hours, use of Utrecht, in Latin and Dutch, the style of decorations and the litanies point to eastern Netherlands, probably Liege, mid fifteen century, mesuring 118 x 82 mm. The manuscript evidently belonged to a convent of Augustinian nuns. St. Augustine leads the confessors in two litanies and the prayers for the dying are only used for female nuns. Archivally matted with both sides of leaf visible. #18824/18826. Very Good.
