PublisherFree Library of Philadelphia
Spain or Portugal
- Initial I
- The style of this initial is reminiscent of Flemish initial decoration. Certain elements in the execution of the initial suggest, however, that the artist was not Flemish but perhaps Spanish or Portuguese. Spain and Flanders had close political and economic ties in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. These ties also extended to the arts. Iberian illuminators were heavily influenced by Flemish artists, many of whom worked under the commission of members of the Spanish and Portuguese aristocracy.
