The art of illumination : the Limbourg brothers and the Belles heures of Jean de France, Duc de Berry by Timothy Husband( Book )
4 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 424 libraries worldwide
"One of the most lavishly illustrated codices of the Middle Ages, the Belles Heures of Jean de France, duc de Berry (ca. 1405-1408/9), is the only manuscript with miniatures executed entirely by the famed Limbourg brothers. Commissioned by its royal patron, this richly illuminated Book of Hours, intended for private devotion and now housed in The Cloisters, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, belonged to the duke's large collection of prized possessions" "In this volume, the Limbourgs provided the customary components of a Book of Hours, including readings from the Gospels and prayers to the Virgin. The Belles Heures, however, was elevated to unprecedented heights by the addition of seven "picture book" insertions. These pages provided a framework for developing the Limbourgs' figural style, refining their palette, experimenting with light and surface values, and devising coherent compositional formulas that focused the dramatic charge of the image. These illuminations, both sacred and secular in subject, range from traditional scenes of Christ's life and ministry to images reflecting the turbulence of the period, such as victims struck by the plague." "Timothy B. Husband's scholarship positions the manuscript, its artists, and its patron in context with other objects in the duke's collection and the sources and inspiration of the art. He meticulously charts the components of the codex, its organization and decoration, sequence of production, and the compositional intelligence of the narrative cycles. He places the Belles Heures within the trajectory of fifteenth-century manuscript illumination, delineating the development of the Limbourgs throughout their short careers. A lyrically written central chapter in this volume describes each illumination in the Belles Heures in formal terms and provides selected transcriptions and English translations of the Latin text."--Jacket
The Hours of Simon de Varie by James H Marrow( Book )
4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 368 libraries worldwide
The Stammheim missal by Elizabeth Cover Teviotdale( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 345 libraries worldwide
"The Stammheim Missal was relatively inaccessible until the Getty Museum acquired it in 1997. With this publication, in which all the major illumination is reproduced in color, both scholars and museum visitors can appreciate the missal more fully as one of the outstanding monuments of medieval art. Created in and for the north German monastery of Saint Michael at Hildesheim, the missal preserves the text and music of the abbey's religious ritual, and its illumination expresses fundamental Christian theology in visual form. Elizabeth C. Teviotdale elucidates the manuscript and its illumination within three traditions: the artistic heritage of the monastery, the illumination of Mass books, and the role of Jewish scripture in Christian art."--BOOK JACKET
Imagining the past in France : history in manuscript painting, 1250-1500 by Elizabeth Morrison( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 345 libraries worldwide
The Armenian Gospels of Gladzor : the life of Christ illuminated by Thomas F Mathews( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 318 libraries worldwide
"The book known as the Gladzor Gospels is a masterpiece of fourteenth-century Armenian art. Now at the Charles E. Young Research Library at the University of California, Los Angeles, it is one of the great Armenian manuscripts in an American collection." "Written and decorated in about 1300 by learned monks in the Armenian province of Siunik', the Gospel book offers significant insight into Armenian religious beliefs and practice of the time. The text - the four Gospel accounts of the life of Christ - is embellished by a remarkable program of brilliantly colored illumination that includes dozens of scenes from the life of Christ, as well as portraits of the text's saintly authors. The text's elaborate illumination also brings to life a vibrant artistic center, the Monastery of Gladzor, which long ago disappeared." "The Armenian Gospels of Gladzor includes sixty color reproductions of the manuscript's illuminated pages, ten black-and-white illustrations, and two maps along with an essay that explores the book's artistic richness and theological complexity."--Jacket
Italian illuminated manuscripts in the J. Paul Getty Museum by Thomas Kren( Book )
5 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and held by 272 libraries worldwide
"Although the Getty Museum's collection of Italian manuscript illuminations is the youngest institutional collection in the United States, it includes a range of Italian manuscripts that spans more than eight centuries. The Getty's holdings presently consist of forty-four works, dating from the ninth to the sixteenth century, and include entire manuscripts as well as leaves and cuttings." "This volume gathers selections from the Getty's collection that highlight the extraordinary achievement of the Italian tradition of illumination. Examples include multiple illuminations from such books as the Montecassino Breviary, the Gualenghi-d'Este Hours, the missal of the antipope John XXIII, and the recently discovered Orsini Missal. Other paintings are such exceptional leaves and cuttings as those from the celebrated choir book of Santa Maria degli Angeli in Florence and the Laudario of the Company of Sant'Agnese, also in Florence." "A wide range of artists is included. Two of the most well-known, Pisanello and Girolamo de Cremona, worked for distinguished patrons at court, while others worked in obscurity and are known today only through their illuminations. One of the finest miniatures in this collection, for example, is credited to an artist known only as the Master of Gerona."--BOOK JACKET
Flemish manuscript painting in context : recent research ( Book )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 271 libraries worldwide
Faces of power & piety by Erik Inglis( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 263 libraries worldwide
"The faces featured in this volume reveal that portraits of the Middle Ages nearly inverted modern expectations. Instead of the subjects' physical appearance, medieval artists emphasized their power and piety, capturing not a single moment but how they wished to be remembered for the ages. This book looks in detail at portraits of illustrious historical figures as well as those of celebrated contemporaries."--BOOK JACKET
Mira calligraphiae monumenta : a sixteenth-century calligraphic manuscript inscribed by Georg Bocskay and illuminated by Joris Hoefnagel by Georg Bocskay( Book )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 262 libraries worldwide
The Spitz master : a Parisian book of hours by Gregory Clark( Book )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 260 libraries worldwide
"The Spitz Hours is one of the Getty Museum's finest French books of hours. It is also one of the most original and inventive manuscripts in the International style. In new art-historical research Gregory Clark places this book's vivid, even witty imagery in the turbulent context of Parisian culture around 1420. The Spitz Master, its primary illuminator, allows the narrative of the miniatures to spill into the borders, bringing its pages alive in a fresh and engaging manner."
The Prayer book of Charles the Bold : a study of a Flemish masterpiece from the Burgundian Court by Antoine de Schryver( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 220 libraries worldwide

The St. Albans psalter : painting and prayer in medieval England by Kristen M Collins( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 203 libraries worldwide
The St. Albans Psalter is one of the most important, famous, and puzzling books produced in twelfth-century England. It was probably created between 1120 and 1140 at St. Albans Abbey, located on the site where Alban, England's first saint, was martyred. The manuscript's powerfully drawn figures and saturated colors are distinct from those in previous Anglo-Saxon painting and signal the arrival of the Romanesque style of illumination in England. Although most twelfth-century prayer books were not illustrated, the St. Albans Psalter includes more than 40 fullpage illuminations and over 200 historiated initials. Decorated with gold and precious colors, the psalter offers a display unparalleled by any other English manuscript to survive from the period. In 2007 the St. Albans Psalter was removed from its binding and in 2012 the disbound leaves traveled to the J. Paul Getty Museum.0Exhibition: J.

Translating the past : Laurent de Premierfait and Boccaccio's De casibus by Anne Dawson Hedeman( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 182 libraries worldwide
"In Translating the Past, art historian Anne D. Hedeman traces the history of Laurent de Premierfait's French translations of Boccaccio's De casibus virorum illustrium, a fourteenth-century text containing cautionary historical tales on the corrupting effects of power. The author examines not only how Boccaccio's Latin made its way into Laurent's French, under the title Des cas des nobles hommes et femmes, but also how the text was translated into visual images."--BOOK JACKET

Masterpieces of the J. Paul Getty Museum by J. Paul Getty Museum( Book )
27 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 123 libraries worldwide
The collection of European drawings in the J. Paul Getty Museum, built up over a decade and a half, has increased steadily in both breadth and depth. While the holdings of drawings from the Italian Renaissance are particularly strong - including, for instance, a double-sided sheet by Leonardo da Vinci - other schools, the French, in particular, are also well represented. The collection's emphasis is on major draftsmen, such as David, Durer, Gainsborough, Goya, Ingres, Piranesi, Poussin, Raphael, Rembrandt, Rubens, Tintoretto, Titian, Veronese, and Watteau, while the occasional acquisition of groups of drawings has added strength in certain areas, such as the German and Swiss Renaissance
