The Pabenham-Clifford Hours
Unique features of fol. 3r
The historiated initial with the Virgin and Child on fol. 3r has several unique features. White areas on this page, including flesh tones, contain lead white only. The particles of some of the pigments are coarser and their hue duller than in other folios. The technique used to model the draperies and the treatment of the gilded background on this miniature are also distinctive. All of these features suggest that the image on this page was painted by a different artist.
