La reproduction des modèles dans des manuscrits hispaniques du XVe siècle
Reproductions of miniature patterns in bibles, books of hours and other sumptuous volumes have been profusely studied by art historians as well as by culture historians. The goal of this essay is to draw attention to significantly less luxurious volumes. We will discuss particular cases of transmission in 15th century Castilian manuscripts: in the first example, the text layout becomes an ornamental quality, mostly because of the geometric distribution of the marginal comments; in the second example, the most significant iconographic patterns are repeated (such as full-folio images with slightly different texts, depending on the volume where they are to be found). This feature, which adds up to the visual decoration of the volume, is identically repeated in successive copies.
