Between 1480 and 1490 in one of the most famous painting schools of the Epoch a codex is created, a masterpiece of late Middle Age book art. It contains the most complete and richest series of pictures depicting the life and suffering of Jesus with altogether 21 full-page miniatures. The artist responsible came out of the second half of the 15th century and was the foremost protagonist of the Cologne school of painting (headmaster Stephan Lochner). The most important achievement to come out of the Cologne painting style – the mixture of the delicateness of the soft styles with a new realistic perception – especially in the expressions found in the full-page miniatures.
The documentation of the Liber Precum contains 12 representative facsimile pages ( 3 double leaves) with a description of the pictures, an introduction in the manuscript and a 16-page comprehensive informational brochure in color. Delivered in a gold-embossed booklet.
