9780807614778: The Hours of Henry VIII: A Renaissance Masterpiece by Jean Poyet

A product for the royal court of France, The Hours of Henry VIII created around 1500 by Jean Poyet, is one of the most splendid Books of Hours from this period. This magnificently illustrated lay book of daily devotions and prayers contains fifty-seven exquisitely hand-painted images all reproduced here together and in colour for the first time. The previously little-known Poyet (active c.1483-1503) enjoyed patronage at the courts of three French Kings. Not only an illuminator of manuscripts of the highest quality, Poyet also created panel paintings, elaborate drawings, and designed theatrical spectacles, all in a style that links Fouquet to Poussin. Author Roger S. Wieck provides a thorough examination of the importance both of this grand manuscript within its art historical context and of Poyet's artistic achievements, which fluidly merged the cool, late Gothic aesthetic of his native northern France with the avant-garde Renaissance style of northern Italy. All known works by Poyet are discussed and illustrated. The volume is enriched with detailed commentaries by William M. Voelkle and K. Michelle Hearne on each section of the Book of Hours and an analysis of the fascinating history of the manuscript (tradition holds that it was once in the collection of Henry VIII, hence its name today).

From Library Journal:

A Book of Hours was a medieval collection of scriptural lessons and prayers for lay readers and a kind of religious day planner for the rich. Pierpont Morgan Library curators Wieck and William M. Voelkle and curatorial assistant K. Michelle Hearne have collaborated here to examine the Hours of Henry VIII, created around 1500 by French illuminator Jean Poyet. This study briefly explores the history of the Books of Hours and of the artists, who were much in demand to produce these works, as well as their imitators. The writing is conversational and interesting, though the lack of an index limits the book's research value. The bulk of the book consists of color plates and accompanying commentary. Handsomely drawn, the illustrations show each delicate brush stroke. One appendix details the physical arrangement of the Hours of Henry VIII; another examines the possible ownership and history of the Hours. Recommended for larger academic libraries, or specialized collections.DKaren Ellis, Nicholson Memorial Lib. Syst., Garland, TX
