Image of David in prayer taken from the Hours of Ladislas IV Vasa

Image of David in prayer, a Leaf from the so-called Hours of Ladislas IV Vasa, Simon Marmion, Valenciennes, 1460s, 105 x 130 mm, Add. MS 71117, f. J. Together with a further 11 miniatures preserved in the British Library and the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, this superb cutting once formed part of a book of hours now in Kraków. Particularly remarkable is Marmion's subtle handling of the play of light within the landscape. The crudely painted border was added early in the 16th century.
