Image of the agony in the garden and Last Supper, Golf book, Simon Bening and workshop, Bruges, circa 1530-1540, 115 x 80 mm, Add. MS 24098, ff. 18v-19
Within this album are preserved two parts of a deluxe book of hours illuminated by the leading Bruges illuminator of the 16th century. The miniatures reflect Bening's outstanding accomplishments in painting both scenes from daily life and the emotional narrative of Christ's Passion. The book takes its name from Bening's depiction of an early form of golf in one of the book's marginal illustrations.
