Created for a Picard nobleman in the 1470s, the Carpentin Hours is remarkable for its illustrations by one of the most innovative illuminators working in Bruges. The manuscript is relatively unknown, as it has always been in private hands, but this study now offers not only a detailed assessment of its contents, purpose and provenance, but also colour reproductions of its full-page miniatures, historiated initials and boldly coloured borders, which demonstrate the ingenuity and virtuosity of their artist.
