A little Medieval illumination for the first post this 2022

 Salvete Omnes,

So we have survived the Saint Sylvester's long night of revelries and fun, I hope, and here we go with this brand new year, so for starters I would like to share  few illuminations from the XV century Europe (Kingdoms of France & Duchy of Burgundy) and   for this first post AD 2022.

From Sire Jehan Froissart's Chronicles - eg Gallica French National Library  digital collections , but on Wiki Commons there are many galleries with various volumes' illuminations from different times and different masters of miniature painting.

These detailed images com from the brushes of various illuminators working at the Burgundian court etc, including Burgundians Master of Anthony de Burgundy and  Loyset Liedet
