Hours of Étienne Chevalier

The Hours of Étienne Chevalier is an illuminated book of hours commissioned by Étienne Chevalier, treasurer to king Charles VII of France, from the miniature painter and illuminator Jean Fouquet. Only 48 of its leaves with 47 miniatures survive, dispersed across seven collections in Europe and the United States of America. Here are some of my favourites.
