The Breslau Psalter

Hand C


Hand C contributed two full-page miniatures (fols. 17v, 20r) and a large historiated initial (fol. 62r). His dense pictorial narrative often resulted in crowded compositions. He followed Hands A and B closely, and shared a palette with Hand B. Yet, his style is dry and linear, and his short figures are devoid of elegance, their exaggerated facial features bordering on the grotesque.

One of Hand C’s typically busy compositions, this image reveals his skill for dramatic story-telling.
