Les Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry

Psalm CXLV

Folio 85r

Kneeling before an altar, David intones a song of hope for the afflicted: "Praise the Lord, O my soul, in my life I will praise the Lord: I will sing to my God as long as I shall be. Put not your trust in princes: in the children of men, in whom there is no salvation."
The scene takes place in the choir of a church. High windows light the blue transept vault supported by massive pillars with attached colonettes. The transept opens onto what could be a sacristy; part of the ambulatory is also visible. The altar hanging is embroidered in gold.
