Illuminating the Renaissance

Genealogical Tree of The Kings of Aragon - detail

Illuminating the Renaissance The Triumph of Flemish Manuscript Painting in Europe.

Featuring more than 130 works of art, this exhibition focuses on the finest and most ambitiously illuminated books produced in Flanders (parts of present day Belgium and France) between 1470 and 1560. During this period, illuminators radically transformed the appearance of the illustrated page, introducing the mastery of light, texture, and space achieved by the finest panel painters of the day.

The virtual exhibition shows only 19 of those work, that can be zoomed and explored. Visit also The Making of a Medieval Book and Picturing the Natural World from the Getty Museum.

More illuminations: Bestiaire du Moyen Âge, Enluminures : base de données, The Medieval Bestiary, The illuminated Middle Ages, Books of Hours, Bibi’s box: The Aberdeen Bestiary and Gode Cookery.
