AN UNPUBLISHED BOOK OF HOURS BELONGING TO THE SO-CALLED SARIJS GROUP, PAINTED IN A FINE STYLE CLOSELY LINKED TO THE ZWOLLE MASTER

PROVENANCE

(1) Signed ‘Geo[rge] T[empleton] Strong, 1842’ (1820–75), American lawyer and diarist; his sale by Bangs, New York, 4 November 1878, lot 821. (2) James William Fulbright (1905-95), United States Senator representing Arkansas from 1945 until his resignation in 1974, initialled by him (‘J.W.F.’ last flyleaf and elsewhere); given to another Senator on an official European trip as a present; thence by descent.

ARTISTS

The calendar and litany confirm a localisation in the diocese of Utrecht: for the pertinent details, see Anne Korteweg’s essay in Books of Hours Reconsidered, 2013, pp.233-59. We are grateful to her for informing us that the manuscript was made in Zwolle and belongs to the Sarijs group (so-called because St Marius - Sint Marijs - is mistakenly contracted in the calendar to ‘Sarijs’): the penwork is typical of the Ijssel river area, and that the illumination is in the style of the ZWOLLE MASTER. On the group see L.S. Wierda, De Sarijs-handschriften: Studie naar een groep laat-middeleeuwse handschriften uit de Ijsselstreek, 1995. The present miniatures are close in style to those of a Book of Hours attributed to Zwolle, c.1465-75, on which see A.M. As-Vijvers, Tuliba collection, 2014, no.6.
