Notes: This folio begins the Office of the Dead. The exquisite initial and border were illuminated by an artist working in a group identified today as the Masters of Margriet Uutenham, so named after a book of hours made for Margriet. This group was active in the eastern Netherlands around 1460. Their style is characterized by such features as can be seen here: large, almost monumental, initials filled in with white foliate motifs as well as a tendency to fill empty spaces with bold and intricate decorative designs predominantly executed in dark colors.
