Les Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry
January
We see here the day chosen for exchanging gifts.
Jean de Berry enjoyed giving and receiving; Paul de Limbourg and his brothers used to participate in the festivities, presenting the prince with an object worthy of their artistry.The Duke sits at his table, surrounded by friends. 
Behind him the blaze of a large fire in the monumental fireplace is guarded by a wickerwork screen. Above the fireplace rises a red silk canopy bearing the Duke’s heraldic motifs: golden fleurs-de-lys, strewn on a blue ground. Wounded swans and bears symbolize the Duke’s love for a lady called Ursine.
More about all the details presented.
