This image—from a never-completed work—portrays David (writer of Psalms and Israelite King).  It was created by a miniaturist working in Esztergom, Hungary between 1500-20.

The Web Gallery provides more information about the illumination:

The miniature representing King David Kneeling comes from the Gradual of Esztergom. It was commissioned by Tamás Bakócz, archbishop of Esztergom (1498-1521).

This wonderfully ornamented large-size codex, produced at Esztergom, was never completed.
