Overview

The "Tres Riches Heures du Duc de Berry" is regarded as the finest 15th-century illuminated manuscript and the supreme example of painting in the International Gothic style. Tres Riches Heures: Behind the Gothic Masterpiece reproduces some of the finest miniatures and describes and discusses the images. It examines the history of the manuscript and the incredible story of the artists, the Limbourg Brothers, who first painted the intricate details of fairy-tale castles, sweeping landscapes, birds, animals, and even insects, with such accuracy. The author also places the paintings in an historical context, with the hardships of real life at the time of the Plague, providing a stark contrast to the depictions of harmony and peace.
