Nettekoven (H. Tenschert, Horae B.M.V. 158 Stundenbuchdruck der Sammlung Bibermühle, 2003, pp. 121-124) also named Master of the Very Small Hours of Anne of Brittany (Jean d'Ypres? ) by N. Reynaud (France 1500, cat. expo. Grand Palais 6 Oct. 2010-10 Jan. 2011, cat. 113-123). This good-quality illuminator can be placed in the entourage of Simon Marmion. We recognize his pastel colors with mauve and pink, as well as the borders. In the case of the Annunciation to the Shepherds, he demonstrates his inventiveness by not following the engraving (Fr. Elsig, "La dynastie Marmion et Amiens: quelques observations", Peindre à Amiens et Beauvais aux XVe et XVIe siècles, Milan, 2011, pp. 75-82).
