Les Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry

Often referred to as the most beautiful Book of Hours in existence, Les Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry is an exemplary illuminated manuscript. Depicted here are the activities on Jean, Duc de Berry’s 15th-century estate, month by month, representing an entire year. Thanks to my husband, who is a lifelong friend of the 20th-century Duc de Berry, I have discovered this fantastic collection of commissioned works.
