Chute Des Anges Rebelles (The Fall Of The Rebel Angels)

Freres Limbourg

Très riches heures du Duc de Berry  (1412 and 1416)

Council in heaven, war & fall of the rebellious angels out of their council seats. Their thrusting out of heaven & fall to become the demons of the underworld.


Тhe calendar page for November of Les Trés Riches Heures du Duc de Berry

Unlike most of the landscapes, the image for November does not depict a specific place related in some way to the Duc de Berry. The scene was painted completely by Jean Colombe, although the tympanum at the top was done by the Limbourg Brothers. The terrain appears to be directly from Colombe’s imagination, although it may have been inspired by the countryside in Savoie, where Colombe completed Les Trés Riches Heures for the Duke of Savoie more than 75 years after it had been begun by the Limbourgs.

Labor of the month: The autumn harvest of acorns, on which pigs are feeding.
