A collaboration of the greatest illuminators of the XV Century

The innovative character, variety in format, and iconography of its illumination, and the complexities of its codicology make this manuscripts, known as La Flora, among the most important and challenging of its day.

La Flora features illumination by Simon Marmion, the Master of the Dresden Prayer Boook, the Master of the First Prayer Book of Maximilian, and the Master of the Prayer Books of around 1500.The suite of full-page miniatures by Simon Marmion is the earliest illumination contained in the manuscript: Marmion painted 22 full-page miniatures that pioneered close-up small groups of a few figures seen at half-length, which represent his most distinctive illumination and perhaps his greatest achievement.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
