    Miniature of St. Mark from a Book of Hours

    [Illuminated Manuscript]. Illuminated Miniature of St. Mark. [Central or Northern France, probably Bourges, early sixteenth century]. Illuminated manuscript on vellum being a leaf from a Book of Hours. In Latin for the Use of Rome. Approximate size of miniature 2.25 x 3.75 inches. Approximate size of leaf 7.25 x 5 inches. This half-page miniature features St. Mark in a studious setting accompanied by his winged lion. The apt use of perspective, as seen in the floor tiles, and the bold use of color and gold, create an impressive impact for such a small miniature. The miniature and text are framed in gold and red, and the initials feature floral designs. The verso features text. Very lightly toned. Small remnants of adhesive on verso. Fine.
