       This work was done in the style of the "Hours of Catherine of Cleves." New York, Pierpont Morgan Gallery. M. 945 and M. 917. Northern Netherlands (Utrecht), c. 1440. Although the design is original, it was done on the same size page as the manuscript (190 mm x 130mm) The two figures are based on a man from one of the miniatures and a woman holding a pitcher from one of the borders.

       Ink, watercolor, and gold leaf on vellum.
