St Anne with the Virgin and Child (suffrage to St Anne)
This 15th-century miniature was painted by Dreux Jean, Philip the Bold’s valet de chambre and illuminator, who was entrusted by the Duke with numerous additions to the Grandes Heures as well as its rebinding in two volumes in 1451. St Anne is accompanied by the Virgin and Child, and by angles playing a harp and a lute. The open book on her knees alludes to the popular image of St Anne teaching the young Virgin to read. The frame features Philip the Bold’s devices: the golden fusils and flints of the Order of the Golden Fleece.
