Product description

Hours of Margaret of Cleves by James H. Marrow (Author), Language : German, Condition : Excellent as new and there is no mark of sign as use, Format: Paper back up, Pages : 186, publisher : Museu Calouste Gulbenkian Lisboa 1995. Product Dimension : 9.4 " x 7.8 " inch,

Synopsis: AS HORAS DE MARGARIDA DE CLEVES/THE HOURS OF MARGARET OF CLEVES,published in Lisbon in 1995, describes and analyzes the format and meaning of a beautiful,turn of the fifteenth century personal "book of hours" belonging to Margaret of Cleves,second wife of Albrecht of Bavaria,Count of Holland(d.1404).The book serves as well to offer a splendid introduction to the subject of medieval books of hours in general.Marrow's gifts as teacher and writer are clear and manifest in his elegant prose style,his ability to provide a great deal of factual information, interesting and substantiated hypotheses about the identity of the manuscript's artist-The Master of Margaret of Cleves-and in his succinct yet satisfying aesthetic analyses of the eleven miniatures which mark the beginnings of the manuscript's text divisions.The CLEVES manuscript currently resides in the Museu Calouste Gulbenkian in Portugal and appears to have a hitherto under-appreciated importance in the history of Dutch manuscript painting in the late fourteenth and early fifteenth centuries. That problem may well have been eliminated by Marrow's present work.This splendid piece of work and contribution to the endlessly fascinating story of medieval.
