January by Jean and Paul Limbourg, Musee Conde, Chantilly.

This is a page from one of the greatest surviving Illuminated Manuscripts. Manuscripts were small devotional books made for wealthy individual to use in their personal worship. This one was made for the Duc of Berry who wanted his life and his properties represented. The attention to detail in these small paintings by the Limbourg brothers is remarkable.

You're right about the detail. There is a lot to view in that painting. If you stare at it and them walk away and come will see something additional.
