The Hours of Jeanne d'Evreux Returns to the Cloisters

The 14th century Hours of Jeanne d'Evreaux have returned to The Cloisters in New York City following conservation and the creation of a facsimile edition. The lavishly-illustrated book of hours -- just 3 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches (8.75 by 6.25 cm) -- was created for Jeanne d'Evreux, Queen of France, by the Parisian illuminator Jean Pucelle, some time between 1324 and 1328.
