REVELATION 01_01 JOHN IN PATMOS ... JEAN A PATMOS

   

13 Douce Apocalypse John and angel c. 1270 Illumination on parchment, 14,6 x 11,4 cm Bodleian Library, Oxford This page depicting St John and the Angel is from the Douce Apocalypse. The influence of the new style found in the books of Louis IX shortly reached England. Henry III, while he commissioned a great many paintings for his palaces and chapels was not a bibliophile. Almost all the painting on a larger scale has vanished and we do not, by way of compensation, possess a nucleus of royal manuscript such as is found in France. Two works survive, however, which, although not commissioned for Henry III, may nevertheless come within this category. One is known as the Douce Apocalypse, the other is the Alfonso Psalter. The Douce Apocalypse, one of an extraordinary number of Apocalypse manuscripts produced during the thirteenth century, was made for Henry III's son, Edward, at sosme date before his accession to the throne in 1272. Thus it probably follows the St Louis manuscripts. ....Web Gallery Of Art | 13 DOUCE APOCALYPSE JOHN AND ANGEL.jpg
