Hours of Jeanne d'Évreux

1325 - 1328

Why is it canonical?

During the High Gothic period, manuscript production blossomed in Paris among lay craftsman, interesting because it had previously been the exclusive work of monastic scriptoria. This book of hours achieves an almost sculptural realism unseen ever before in manuscript illumination.
