The Brothers Limbourg

The brothers Paul, Herman and Johan Limbourg were descendants of the Maelwael-Limbourg lineage. Their story begins in Nijmegen, where they were born at the end of the 14th century. Their glory days began in France, first at the Burgundian court of Philip the Bold, and later at the court of the powerful Duke Jean de Berry.

The Limbourg brothers, or in Dutch Gebroeders van Limburg (Herman, Paul, and Johan; fl. 1385 – 1416), were famous Dutch Renaissance miniature painters from the city of Nijmegen. They were active in the early 15th century in France and Burgundy. They created what is certainly the best known late medieval illuminated manuscript, the Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry.
