The Breslau Psalter

Hand G


Hand G painted two full-page miniatures (fols. 114r, 115v). He emulated Hand A’s monumental figures, chromatic juxtapositions and drapery folds, but shared a palette with Hands E and F. Among the Silesian artists, he showed the strongest interest in the work of the Gaibana Master. He borrowed a Byzantine iconographic scheme from the Beatus initial (fol. 23v) for one of his own compositions (fol. 115v).
