Book of Hours Analysis

Book Of Hours. Paris, 1400

This piece uses its colors, specifically the blues and reds, to draw the viewer in. Both the blue and the red are quite bold which catches the eye right away. Aside from that the other colors are fairly plain or washed out. However that may just be due to the loss of quality over time. This is another work that uses line to form complex and active designs, which give the work more energy and movement. This may have been done to help fill the page and give more life to the art, leaving only small amounts of blank, unused space space.
