Leaves From a Psalter by William De Brailes

Video from Ziereis Facsimiles

"William de Brailes is considered to be the unsurpassed master of 13th century English illumination. In his works, unbelievable inventive power and masterful artistry meet deep faith and precious materials. Unfortunately, one of his most outstanding works only exists today in a few fragments: a psalter from Oxford, originating ca. 1240. Only seven pages, stored today in Cambridge and New York, offer a glimpse into the glory of William de Brailes’ art. As an additional exceptional feature, the master immortalized himself in a minute portrait in one of the illustrations!" from video introduction
