Notes: This miniature begins Matins of the Hours of the Virgin. In the lower border is a coat of arms of the Hurault de Chivernay (or Cheverny) family of Brittany, suggesting that this manuscript once belonged to a member of that family. The manuscript was illuminated by the Master of Morgan 85, an anonymous artist who was part of the large and productive workshop of Jean Pichore, a Parisian artist of the sixteenth century. Pichore worked for an impressive roster of clients, including King Louis XII and Cardinal Georges d'Ambroise, archbishop of Rouen.
