Created in Provence around 1440–50, the manuscript known as “The Unfinished Hours” was illuminated by two outstanding painters, Enguerrand Quarton and Barthélemy d’Eyck. Though much of the decoration was left incomplete, the artists’ intentions are indicated by sketches, notes, and blank spaces.
“The Unfinished Hours”: MS M.358, fol. 19. Purchased by J. Pierpont Morgan (1837-1913) in 1909.
