The present leaf can be added to the corpus of works attributed to NIKOLAUS KUTHNER as suggested by Maria Theisen (see U. Jenni and M. Theisen, Mitteleuropäische Schulen IV: die Hofwerkstätten König Wenzels IV. (ca. 1380-1400). Verzeichnis der illuminierten Handschriften und Inkunabeln der Österreichischen Nationalbibliothek, 2014). Kuthner participated in the illumination of the multi-volume Wenceslas Bible, a deluxe manuscript commissioned by King Wenceslaus IV of Bohemia (1378-1419) and made in Prague in the 1390s.
