[Book of Hours Pentecostal Illumination from the 15th Century, Bruges (Belgium)]

Description: A leaf from a Book of Hours, in Latin, with a full-page illumination of Pentecost (Bruges, ca. 1460). The illustration is enclosed by a wide and ornate bar frame in pink and blue with gold tracery, the frame outlined in burnished gold with floral cornerpieces in colors and gold, the whole within a full floral border filled with blue, pink, and red flowers, with blue and gold acanthus leaves and green buds and leaves as well as many tiny burnished gold dots. The Virgin and the Apostles gathered in a large room with much architectural detail--blue, green, and gold columns, gray stone walls, mullioned windows, vaulted blue and red ceilings, and an intricately detailed blue and pink tiled floor, as golden rays of light shine through an open window.
