Very Rich Hours
Tres Riches Heures is an illustrated calendar and prayerbook that was commissioned by Jean, Duke of Berry, around the year 1413. The fascinating and delightful illustrations and illuminations for the book were created by the Limbourg brothers. Additional illustrations were later added by the artist Jean Colombe.
The book begins with a calendar that includes a full-page illustration for each month of the year, and continues with over 100 lluminated pages that are decorated with contemporary and biblical scenes and elaborately decorated lettering and margins.
