Books of Hours (Horae) were the undisputed medieval ‘bestsellers.’ They had a profound effect on European devotional, educational, and aesthetic practices. Gilles and Germain Hardouyn, active in Paris from 1491 to 1541, specialized in hybrid printed Horae that were hand-painted in imitation of illuminated manuscripts.

 

Warren will discuss why these prints imitate the effects of illuminations well as the broader implications of this practice, which question the history of printmaking as a linear trajectory of ever increasing media specificity.
