A non-invasive study of the illuminated manuscript MS. Fr. 9084: one or two palettes?

  • The manuscript of the History of Outremer by William of Tyre stored at the BNF (ms. fr. 9084) is believed to have been illustrated by two different hands. Indeed, the first five miniatures of this manuscript appear to be very different from the last seventeen, which were supposedly painted by an artist known as the "Hospitaller Master". This painter worked on at least two manuscripts in Paris between 1276 and 1280, and eight more in Saint Jean d'Acre before 1291. During his stay in the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem, his palette changed and reached its most important development in the Manuscript of the History of Outremer, maybe influenced by the colourful crusader style of the first five miniatures. The present work aims at identifying the pigments used on both parts of the manuscripts and see whether they are the same for both artists or not. For that, portable XRF analysis was used directly at the Bibliothèque National de France in Paris, where the manuscript is stored.

For that, portable XRF analysis was used directly at the Bibliothèque National de France in Paris, where the manuscript is stored. This allowed a quick, non destructive and non invasive study of the manuscript. Significant differences were observed in the compositions of some pigments indeed, in particular for the red and green, showing the use of different palettes. This could indicate that the Hospitaller Master not only brought his knowledge and style, but also probably part of his palette of pigments with him when moving to Saint Jean d'Acre.zeige mehrzeige weniger
