My castle walls were a bit bare so I decided to create this series of paintings.

These paintings are from the Très Riches Heures  (or a book of hours) which was a 15th century illuminated manuscript. This was a collection of the text for each liturgical hour of the day - hence the name - which often included other, supplementary, texts. Calendars, prayers, psalms and masses for certain holy days were commonly included. The images are from the calendar section of the Très Riches Heures. More information about Les très riches heures du Duc de Berry and what each scene depicts can be found at WebMuseum, Paris.

All twelve images are found underneath "Sent to My Room Without Dinner" from the Nightlife Expansion pack.

You can use these paintings in Lots/Houses, Stories etc if you include credit & a link but:
DON'T upload these to pay sites
DON'T upload these to the Exchange
DON'T claim them as your own.

Thank you to:
Quaxi and the team for SimPE,
Marvine for the User-Interface Mod: No Red Lines During Pause mod which came in very useful when taking the screen shots,
Wikimedia Commons for the images.
