The Virgin and Child with Patrons
This manuscript has been dated to ca. 1500.
This miniature precedes a special prayer to the Virgin Mary that was read on Saturdays. The man and woman who kneel in prayer on either side of the Virgin and Child probably represent the couple who originally owned the manuscript. Based on a coat of arms on fol. 37v, the original owners have been identified as from the families of Quinard of Languedoc and Venot de Noisy of Burgundy and Lyonnais.
