Things I've picked up along the way...

Pretty medieval manuscript of the day is another illumination of the presentation in the temple, but this time executed in grisaille with gold leaf highlights. It is a really good example of the grisaille technique, using a very limited palette of grey to great effect. The manuscript was produced in the late fifteenth century in Flanders, but now lives in the Walters Museum, Baltimore.
