Product Description

M6642 A Standing Saint, Illuminated Miniature from a Choirbook, Nerio da Bologna, Italy, Bologna, c. 1310

A carefully cut to shape piece of vellum (probably the initial “I” perhaps beginning the word ‘Johannes” possibly John the Evangelist) features a bearded, but youthful saint, with a great head of hair and dressed in orange and blue, the figure within a multicolored frame that arches to a point at the top and encloses a background of burnished gold, the man stands with one foot dangling over the gothic trefoil-topped arch, the pillars on either side sprouting crosier-like acanthus curls, the saint holds a palm in his right hand and a book through the folds in his robe in the other hand. Size: 110 x 75 mm.
