The work of the Virgil Master (fl. in Paris, c. 1390-1420) was quite popular among the members of the court of John, duke of Berry, who acquired – mainly by gift – more than a half dozen manuscripts illuminated by this artist. The duke’s treasurer, Jacques Courau, commissioned several books from the Virgil Master, including a copy of Virgil’s Bucolics and Aeneid, after whom the artist is named (Florence, Biblioteca Laurenziana, Med. Pal. 69).
