Comments

Saint Georges terrassant le dragon (103 x 64 mm)
La scene est traditionnelle. Saint Georges a cheval transperce le monstre devoreur d'enfants tandis que la fille du roi qui devait etre la prochaine victime prie a l'arriere-plan.
La decoration marginale, tres depouillee, est identique pour toutes les miniatures. Elle consiste en fines tiges a la plume se terminant en pointes de fleches d'or.
Livre d'heures execute dans les Pays-Bas du nord (ms. Wittert 35, f° 14v)
Pays-Bas, debut XVe s.

ca. 1415 - 'St. George in the Froymont-De Vinck-Wittert Hours' (Master of the Morgan Infancy Cycle), probably Delft, Holland, folio 14v, ms. Wittert 35, Bibliotheque de l'Universite, Liege, Belgium
"Die heilighe ridder sinte Joris", Middle Dutch for "The holy knight saint George".
The unknown artist, known to us as the Master of the Morgan Infancy Cycle, got his name from a manuscript in the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York (ms. M 866) and probably had his workshop in Delft, Holland.
Dutch Fashion in armour was a mixture of that of its fellow neighbours from the Holy Roman Empire to the east, and that of French-influenced Flanders to the south. The Germanic taste can be seen in the knight's Kastenbrust, which is of a rather early style and would become more boxy during the next decade.
Note the pointy edge of the breastplate and the two small circular shapes on the left and right side. The lowest lame of the early deep fauld depicts a frontal cutaway at the groin to facilitate riding a horse. A fairly new feature.
Artistically it's beautiful to see how the horse has been fitted perfectly in the open space by looking behind without losing a sense of adjustment.
