A Parchment Hole Used by an Artist (Midweek Miscellany 2)
This really has nothing to do with provenance, but it's too good not to share.
This drawing ...
... appears in the lower margin of the huge (c.530×370mm) Clumber Bible (France, c.1395):
The most detailed published description of the manuscript is: Sam Fogg,
Illuminated Manuscripts: An Exhibition at the Blumka Gallery, New York
(London, 1999), no.12 pp.44–49.
