The Birth of Landscape Painting from the Tres Riches Heures to Bruegel
The Très riches heures‘ fame is due to the extraordinary series of miniatures decorating the manuscript. These pictures were the work of the so-called Limbourg brothers. Traditional scholarship has emphasized the extraordinary “naturalism” of the paintings. The sense of illusionistic space and attention to light are unprecedented at this period.
