A devil on a leash.
French: c. 1480. 138 x 98mm. Miniature painting of a white-robed Saint with halo holding a devil on a leash; the devil painted entirely in gold. The miniature is in good condition but the border of the rest of the leaf outside the miniature has suffered damage from damp on both sides. Also there is a small green inscription across the bottom of the Saints robe which has been rubbed to illegibility. Origin and provenance unknown; from a private California collection.
