Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Netherlandish manuscript illuminator, active in the last quarter of the 15th century. He is named after a Book of Hours painted for Mary of Burgundy, who married the Emperor Maximilian I (see Habsburg) in 1477 and died in 1482 (Österreichische Nationalbibliothek, Vienna). This is among the finest illuminated books of the period, with many charming everyday-life and still-life details, and other high-quality works in a similar style have been attributed to him, including a Book of Hours in the Bodleian Library, Oxford. It has been suggested that he is to be identified with Sanders Bening.
