The Book of Hours from the second half of the fifteenth century attributed to Maître François, the LA147, is likely to have belonged to René II of Lorraine, who is represented kneeling before the Virgin and Child in the illumination that opens the prayer Obsecro te. Our intention here is to pay tribute to Professor François Avril by presenting the results of a study he carried out and which uncovered some of the mysteries contained in this manuscript.

Lecture by: Ana Lemos

This by lecture is part of the seminar cycle Treasures on Parchment. Calouste Sarkis Gulbenkian’s collection of western illuminated manuscripts.
