De la pierre au parchemin: le livre d’heures de Lodewijk van Boghem et le monastère royal de Brou
This paper will examine the artistic inventions in the Hours of Lodewijk van Boghem, architect of the church in Brou (Bourg-en-Bresse), which was errected on behalf of Margaret of Austria between 1506 and 1532 as the burial church of her late husband Philibert II of Savoy. The book was most likely acquired by van Boghem in Lyons but it was later embellished with highly original border designs and compositions that reflect the owner’s life and work in the Church of Brou. The various aspects of this relation between manuscript illumination and monumental decorations will be explored in this contribution.
