Notes: This manuscript has been dated to ca. 1415-1420.
Notes: This miniature begins the Suffrage to St. Anthony Abbot. The miniature was painted in the style of the influential Parisian illuminator known as the Bedford Master, active ca. 1405-1465. It may be an early work of the Bedford Master himself. This master is one of four, possibly five, artists who worked on this manuscript. In the later Middle Ages, illuminated manuscripts were most often produced in workshops that employed several artists. These commercial workshops developed in response to the growing demand in lay society for beautifully illuminated manuscripts.
