Lot Details

Lot 2
[ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT] [BENING, ALEXANDER (SANDER)--attrib.]. Pair of arch-topped miniatures (of the Adoration and the Deposition respectively), likely extracted from a Book of Hours.
Low Countries (Ghent or Bruges): circa 1480. 4 x 2 3/8 inches (10.5 x 6 cm); each gold and colors on vellum, cut to the outer gilt border, versos without text. Lightly adhered to card (one just detaching, with small tape stains on verso), framed.

Reportedly sold by Silberman Galleries, New York, and apparently attributed to Alexander Bening by the art historian Francis Russell, then at Christie's. The attribution appears entirely reasonable; the quality of the paintings are first-rate, apparently from a rather grand manuscript, and the details of forms and features are very much in line with Bening's work.
