Alexander Master

Quick Reference

[Master of the Alexander Romance] (fl c.1420–50). Illuminator, active in France. He is named after the Romance of Alexander (London, BL, Royal MS 20.B.XX), which was connected by Pächt and Alexander with the miniatures in two Books of Hours of Paris Use (c. 1420–30; Oxford, Bodleian Lib., MS. Liturg. 100; and Stonyhurst, Lancs, MS. 33). All three of these manuscripts as well as others were thought by Meiss to be the later work of the master of the Harvard hannibal.
