This Book of Hours was illuminated in Paris by the so-called Dunois Master, a close follower of the Bedford Master. The miniature on folio 254r, illustrated here, shows St Geneviève, patron saint of Paris. Below her is a view of the Île de la Cité, with the west front of Notre Dame visible and the Sainte Chapelle and Conciergerie in front of it.
