A 15th century illuminated manuscript leaf on parchment. This piece is painted in bold colors with gold tone embellishments and depicts the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Latin text beneath the image that continues onto the verso and decorative filigrees in the margins. This is a superb example of a painted page from a book of hours, in the sunlight the gold really stands out, the coloring is superb as are the expressions on the faces of the subjects. I wish I knew more about the place of publication and time as I have admired these for many years and this is truly a superb example of the art. Good some wear to the edges of the mat; some warping to the parchment; stain to the bottom left and right edges of the image. 11.0″ W x 14.0″ H x 0.25″ D – measurements of mat; visible image measures 4.5″ W x 6.0 H.
