Queen Mary Psalter
1300-1320 Illumination on parchment British Library, London The large codex contains hundreds of illustrations of scenes from the Old and New Testament. It is one of the most outstanding piece of the 14th century English codices. This page is divided into six fields of different background patterns, all representing the figures of a prophet and an apostle. Their names are at the bottom of the fields: Sofonias-Philippus, Micheas-Matheus, Daniel-Tadeus, Iohel-Bartolomeus, Malachias-Simon, Ezechiel-Mathias. The name of the codex comes from the fact that 200 years after its creation it was given to Queen Mary of Tudor. , MINIATURIST, English , Queen Mary' Psalter , 1301-1350 , English , illumination , religious

Queen Mary Psalter
1310 Illumination on parchment, 27,5 x 17,3 cm British Museum, London The illumination from the Queen Mary Psalter represents the Marriage at Cana. In the beginning of the fourteenth century the most important group of English manuscripts is associated with not London but East Anglia. One book of this group, the so-called Queen Mary Psalter with its high quality and prolific but restrained illustration, ought to be a royal book. It contains a large number of introductory pictures, pictures set in the text, and small drawings at the foot of the pages. The illustrations are executed in a drawing technique. The small drawings are lightly tinted; the main pictures are more heavily coloured but still rely on line rather than modelling. The Psalter has some interesting features. The presentation of most of the illuminations is uniform in that the scenes are enacted within a modest architectural framework. They are, moreover, included within the text of the psalter as illustrations independent of the initial decoration. , MINIATURIST, English , Queen Mary Psalter , 1301-1350 , English , illumination , religious
