Petrarch's manuscript was once composed in 1380 at Padua for Francesco da Carrara via Lombardo della Seta, Petrarch's disciple. The indication of this Venetian derivation is additional proven via Pallucchini who outlined the rapport of this configuration with the Miracle of St. Mar\ via Paolo Veneziano. This illuminator, whose Venetian connotations look obvious to us, could be the exact same artist who painted the sunshine, based plates, f. 89, hot water, or f. ninety one, oil of almonds, yet isn't to be pointed out with the artist who labored on f. ninety, snow and ice, who finds in his panorama a volumetric definition that may were thought of discordant in the Venetian milieu, and screens in his determine a inflexible folding of the material that's very faraway from the quivering brushwork obvious not just on f. 89 and f. ninety one but additionally on f. ninety two, sugar, and in different places. we predict the paintings of one other assistant is hid one of the folios of the Vienna manuscript, person who should have labored on Historia Plantarum, Ms. 459 within the Casanatense Library in Rome (which, in our opinion, got here from the workshop of Giovannino dei Grassi, yet with out his own intervention). We point out f. 255v within the Roman codex, compared to f. 39, violets, or f. 52v, turnips, the place the rapport is not just iconographic, within the feel that vegetation are continuously represented whose sprouting leaves supply a definite analogy, yet can be made up our minds by way of the insertion of the human determine that therefore integrates the composition, mixing with the naturalistic representation. Folio 54v within the Historia Plantarum additionally provides an identical scenario and will be in comparison with a folio resembling f. 48v, sorghum, if we want to boost the thesis of an id of execution; however the comparable factor applies to many different plates, corresponding to f. 47v and f. forty eight, millet and panic grass, if we want to restrict ourselves to a comparability of comparable compositions. now we have already underlined the correspondence of execution among f. 215v and f. fifty one, turnips; we might additionally wish to enhance an analogous connection among f. one hundred forty and f. 63v, coagulated milk, within the Vienna manuscript. Leafing during the manuscript, the similarities obvious are extra outlined inside that personality of homogeneity which, in contract with Unterkircher, we've famous. Folio fifty four, summer season, absolutely some of the most soft within the whole manuscript, should still now be reconsidered within the gentle of the research of the Liege manuscript which has been released right here for the 1st time. The Vienna composition has as its matrix the 2 folios (f. eighty one, summer time, and f. 28, wheat) within the Liege codex. Upon shut scrutiny, the composition of the scene evidences, actually, exact visible moments, graphically outlined in a definite experience by means of the small, centrally put tree. the following, Giovannino's matrix, amassed in the course of the repertoires, is clear and, even though the transcription, continues to be because the very acceptable history for the total composition. so far as the Paris Tacuinum is worried, we now have hypothesized that it used to be exactly the know-how of this manuscript which brought on the Bishop of Trent to hunt to have an analogous paintings performed for him; yet this doesn't end up that the illuminator commissioned with its execution had in his fingers the codex as soon as 36 owned by way of Verde Visconti.
