French Hood Images

Full View of "A Man Confessing"

"A Man Confessing", from Book of Hours, vol 3, fol. 51v, Master of James IV of Scotland. Probably Ghent, ca. 1500. Collection: Vatican City, Biblioteca Apostilica Vaticana, Vat. lat. 3770.

My focus for this image is the back view of the hood worn by the woman on the foreground floor.
