    Spanish Forger Large Miniature on an Antiphonal Leaf Fragment

    [Illuminated Manuscript]. Spanish Forger Large Miniature of The Presentation of a Portrait. [n.p., ca. 1900]. Illuminated miniature on vellum being on an antiphonal leaf fragment. Approximately 9 x 9.75 inches.

    A work by the infamous Spanish Forger of the late 19th to early 20th century, this miniature depicts the presentation of the portrait of a king to the luxuriously dressed queen, perhaps to see if he would be an appropriate husband. Beyond the sumptuous surroundings of the interior, the vast lands and golden sky of the queen's kingdom are on display. Some fading and rubbing to the borders and golden sky. The verso features musical notations from the antiphonal. Very good.
