  • Title: A Fifteenth-Century French Manuscript and an Unknown Painting by Robert Campin [the author suggests that the illustration of the Virgin and child in the D'Ailly Hours was copied from a now-lost panel painting by Robert Campin; the author speculates that commissioners of manuscripts wanted copies of their favorite religious images in their prayer books in part because of their proven efficacy].
