Abstract:

This is the first comprehensive survey of England's unique contribution to the art of the Renaissance: the portrait miniature. Arising out of the technical traditions of medieval manuscript illumination and inspired by the art of the Valois court, the portrait miniature, or limning (from' illumination') as it was then called, was to remain for a century the ideal vehicle for the expression of the cult of the Crown, an art form peculiarly suited to the ruling classes of post-Reformation England."--Jacket.
