The Luttrell Psalter- Pages 13 and 14
Copyright © The British Library Board
Psalm 87, f. 157v
This is the first example of the pages executed by the foremost artist of the Luttrell Psalter. The artist appears to have designed and painted this section without help from an assistant, apart from some minor colouring work. The marginal grotesques reach new heights of fantasy, and the colours used are softer and more varied. Textures and facial expressions are more expertly rendered.
The marginal illustrations on this page seem to refer directly to the text.
