Opening with the Pentecost

This opening begins the Hours of the Holy Spirit. The miniature is painted by a Bruges artist known as the Master of Edward IV for a manuscript he illuminated for the English king. The border decoration filled with illusionistic flowers, plants and insects on a gold background is typical of Flemish illumination at this time.
