The Rohan Master
The Rohan Hours is a book I have had the pleasure of obtaining from my (now late) aunt Topsy. She was an ardent art enthusiast, and she gave me several art books when I helped her move to Minnesota from Boston. She gave me a wonderful gift in these books, and to share I plan scanning and posting images from one of these books titled Grandes Heures de Rohan, which is French for the Grand Hours Of Rohan. This is a book of hours painted by an anonymous artist named the Rohan Master, dated +/- 1430. I will attempt to include the images in relation to their month, starting with January.

In this first illustration we see a bearded peasant advanced in years warming himself by a log fire.
The image next to him shows God the Father symbolized in a scene from creation.
