Border decoration with deer
These cuttings have been dated to ca. 1475.
This cutting may have come from a now lost missal that documents show was illuminated by Girolamo da Cremona (fl. 1451-1483) for Lucrezia de'Medici, a member of the powerful Medici family of Florence. The carefully observed treatments of space and naturalistic detail as well as the illusionistic vine-scroll border decoration dotted with small pearls are hallmarks of this important Renaissance artist.
