"The Cloisters is the branch of The Metropolitan Museum of Art devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. This splendid new guide, richly illustrated with more than 175 color pictures, offers a broad introduction to the remarkable history of The Cloisters as well as a lively and informative discussion of the treasures within. Assembled with Romanesque and Gothic architectural elements dating from the twelfth through the fifteenth century, The Cloisters is itself a New York City landmark, overlooking sweeping vistas of the Hudson River in Upper Manhattan. Long cherished as a world-class museum, it also contains beautiful gardens featuring plants, fruit trees, and useful herbs familiar from the collection's medieval tapestries and other works of art. Among the masterworks of medieval religious and domestic life housed in The Cloisters are exceptional examples of carved ivory, illuminated manuscripts, stained glass, silver- and goldsmiths' work, and tapestries, including the famous Unicorn in Captivity. Enriched by the latest scholarship from The Cloisters' expert staff of curators, educators, and horticulturalists, this volume will stand as the definitive source on the collection for years to come." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/enhancements/fy0662/2005029684-d.html

Home to an extraordinary collection of treasured masterworks, including the famed Unicorn Tapestries, 'The Cloisters' is devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. This splendid new guide, published to celebrate The Cloisters' seventy-fifth anniversary, richly illustrates and describes the most important highlights of its collection, from paintings, illuminated manuscripts, and exquisitely carved ivories to its monumental architecture evocative of the grand religious spaces and domestic interiors of the Middle Ages. 'The Cloisters' remains a testament to design innovation - a New York City landmark with sweeping views of the Hudson River - featuring original elements of Romanesque and Gothic architecture dating from the 12th through the 15th century. Three of the structures enclose beautiful gardens cultivated with species known from tapestries, medieval herbals, and other historic sources. These exotic spaces, the art masterpieces, and the fragrant plants offer visitors an oasis of serenity and inspiration

Small wonders : late-Gothic boxwood micro-carvings from the low countries by Ont.) Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Boxwood prayer beads, rosaries and miniature altarpieces made in Northern Europe during the early 1500s demonstrate the limitless potential of human artistic practice. These tiny masterpieces, small enough to fit in the palm of the hand, depict complex scenes with elegance and precision. Without fail, they inspire viewers to ask how a person could have possibly made them, a question that can only be answered today. Debuting in Toronto, the exhibition Small Wonders: Gothic Boxwood Miniatures brings together for the first time more than 60 rare boxwood carvings from institutions and private collections across Europe and North America. The exhibition offers new insight into the methods of production and cultural significance of these awe-inspiring works of art, highlighting the cutting edge technology used by curators and conservators in their search to understand these miniature sculptures
