A leaf from the Winchester Bible at the Morgan Librarydepicts scenes from the life of David. Easily the most important single page in the Morgan’s collection, it is as dynamic as a modern-day comic book but with quietly emotive breaks in the action. In the final panel King David, mourning the death of his young son, buries his face in his red robe.
