The Master of the Prayer Books of around 1500 was named for a group of devotional manuscripts by the same hand dating to the years surrounding 1500. Despite the name, this illuminator's foremost accomplishments are in the field of secular imagery. The Master of the Prayer Books particularly delighted in incorporating details from the daily lives of both the upper and lower classes in a wide range of original narratives. The calendar illuminations of the artist's devotional books likewise depict courtly amusements as well as rural activities.
