Enclosed gardens of Mechelen : late medieval paradise gardens revealed by Symposium for the Study of Underdrawing and Technology in Painting( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Late Middle Ages saw the emergence in the Low Countries of a unique form of religious art that employed a diverse range of artefacts and memorabilia: Enclosed Gardens. These unique mixed-media objects represent an idealized spiritual and paradisiacal world. Aside from polychrome statuettes (poupées de Malines), the Gardens include silk flowers, metal pilgrim badges, wax medallions, relics, alabaster artefacts, parchment, paper and pipe clay. Finishing decorative touches include sequins, pearls and beads made of glass, bone coral and amber. In their entirety, each one is an extraordinary journey through a 'garden' of the imagination that can be opened or closed up with painted panels. The sixteenth-century Enclosed Gardens of Mechelen enjoy international recognition as unique creations and masterpieces. They are a special mixture of devotion, spirituality and artisan innovation. This precious collection is held at the Museum Hof van Busleyden in Mechelen. This book not only brings together knowledge about the Gardens' content and visual language, but also focuses attention on their particular physical features. Close-up photographs show artefacts never previously observed and help unravel our understanding of these historic mixedmedia works of art. This first complete overview of the Mechelen Enclosed Gardens is the result of years of international academic research
De besloten hofjes van Mechelen : laatmiddeleeuwse paradijstuinen ontrafeld by Symposium for the Study of Underdrawing and Technology in Painting( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in Dutch and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tijdens de late middeleeuwen ontstond in de Lage Landen een unieke religieuze kunstvorm, die gebruikmaakte van een grote verscheidenheid aan artefacten en memorabilia: de Besloten Hofjes. Deze unieke mixed-mediaobjecten stellen een ideale spirituele en paradijselijke wereld voor. Behalve gepolychromeerde beeldjes (poupées de Malines) bevatten de Hofjes zijdebloemen, metalen pelgrimsinsignes, wassen medaillons, relieken, artefacten in albast, perkament, papier en pijpaarde. Ze zijn afgewerkt met lovertjes, parels en kralen in glas, been, koraal en amber. Het geheel is een indrukwekkende, tot de verbeelding sprekende 'tuin', die met beschilderde panelen kan worden afgesloten. De zestiende-eeuwse Hofjes van Mechelen genieten internationale erkenning als unieke creaties en topstukken. Ze zijn een bijzondere mix van devotie, spiritualiteit en ambachtelijke innovatie. De zeldzame collectie wordt bewaard in het Mechelse Museum Hof van Busleyden. Dit boek verzamelt niet alleen kennis over de inhoud en de beeldtaal van de Hofjes, maar richt ook de aandacht op de bijzondere materiële kenmerken. Detailfoto's tonen nooit eerder geobserveerde artefacten en ontrafelen de historische mixed-mediakunstwerken. Dit eerste totaaloverzicht van de Mechelse Besloten Hofjes is het resultaat van jarenlang internationaal academisch onderzoek
