Notes: Simon Bening, the Flemish artist who painted these miniatures, was one of the most celebrated illuminators of his time. Based in the city of Bruges in what is today Belgium, Bening's reputation was international and drew the attention of royal and aristocratic patrons all over Europe. These miniatures, for example, come from a now lost manuscript that may have been made for Fadrique Enriquez de Ribera (d. 1538), a Spanish nobleman who had commercial ties with Flanders. The coat of arms in the lower margin represents the families of Enriquez and Ribera.
Notes: The Instruments of the Passion, the Last Judgment, the Resurrection of the Elect, and the Parable of the Fig Tree
