The Turin-Milan Hours (or Milan-Turin hours, Turin Hours etc.) is an incomplete illuminated manuscript, despite its name not strictly a book of hours, of exceptional quality and importance, with a very complicated history both during and after its production. It contains several miniatures of about 1420 by Jan van Eyck, his brother Hubert van Eyck, or artists very closely associated with them. About a decade or so later Barthélemy d'Eyck may have worked on some miniatures. Of the several portions of the book, that kept in Turin was destroyed in a fire in 1904, though black-and-white photographs exist.
