Illuminated Painting of the Virgin Mary

BEAUTIFUL, VERY LARGE (ANTIPHONAL-SIZED) 16TH-CENTURY GERMAN ILLUMINATED PAINTING OF THE VIRGIN MARY AND CHILD

ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT. Illuminated Painting of the Virgin Mary. Germany, 16th century. One vellum leaf, image measures 10-1/4 by 17 inches; leaf measures 14 by 20-1/2 inches; matted and framed, entire piece measures 20 by 26 inches. $22,000.

Splendid and very large—antiphonal sized, though not from an antiphonal—16th-century hand-painted illuminated portrait of the Virgin Mary praying over Jesus as a baby, handsomely framed.

This vellum leaf from a 16th-century German manuscript presents a richly hand-painted portrait of the Virgin Mary and Child, in vibrant hues of red, blue, gold and green, with gold and green acanthus leaves in the corners. A splendid and very large folio or even antiphonal-sized image.

A bit of the paint in the corners and along the lower edge has lifted, a bit of expected wrinkling to vellum, central image of the Virgin and Child clean and fine, coloring vivid. A beautiful and exceptionally large framed illuminated portrait in excellent condition.
