February
f. 19v-20

The occupations of the months traditionally combine depictions of hard agricultural labour with the pleasurable pastimes of the nobility. The miniature for February shows nobles at a feast. The artist's treament of light is striking, particularly that from the firebrands which throw light back towards the viewer.
