|Notes||Mounted. Women in 15th century Burgundian dress (hanging sleeves, headdress'); Star of David and fleur-de-lis motifs, large codex/book, beds and rugs. This is in fact a copy of a small miniature which is held in the British Library, Wing may have made drawings from before the actual object though the colours are probably a shade more vibrant than the original. The miniature shows Christine de Pisan offering her book to Ysabeau of Bavaria. Christine de Pisan wrote delicate love poetry at a time when literature and the visual arts were particularly flourishing in France.
This would have originally been part of the Central School's Teaching Examples Collection.
