We have the privilege of seeing the entirety of the Grandes Heures d'Anne de Bretagne online. I absolutely love this Book of Hours, which was made c. 1505 by an unknown artist.Anne de Bretagne was born in 1477 and died in 1513 at the age of 35. She was a queen of France and one of the best-known women of her age. She is buried with other French royalty in St. Denis Basilica.
Before looking at her Grandes Heures, we should note that another illuminated manuscript that bears her name, the Prayer Book of Anne de Bretagne, is also available online. It was illuminated by Jean Poyer, is owned by the Morgan Library, New York City, and is quite wonderful.
And now onward to the Grandes Heures. This manuscript is viewable at the Gallica site of the Bibliotheque National de France. Its pages fall into three main categories:
2: Some pages present the text of a prayer surrounded on all four sides with a decorated margin. One example is at f. 25r.
