Completed by 1408 or 1409, The Belles Heures of Jean de France
, a private devotional book, was the first of several sumptuous manuscripts commissioned by the duke of Berry from the Limbourg brothers, Paul, Jean, and Herman. It is perhaps the only virtually complete book to survive from the duke's extraordinary library. Our elaborate card includes details from two scenes, with artwork on the inside panel.
