Les Tres Riches Heures du Duc du BerryTransliteracies Research Report

Ornate book of hours from the 14th century.

Les Tres Riches Heures du Duc du Berry (“The Very Rich Hours of the Duke of Berryâ€?) is one of the most sumptuous and costly books of hours. The calendars in Les Tres Riches Heures were painted by Paul, Hermann and Jean Limoges, three brothers from Flanders. Later additions were carried out by the late 14th- century artist Jean Colombe. The original manuscript is at the Condé Museum in Chantilly, France. (From Donna Beth Ellard’s research report.)
