The Hours of Catherine of Cleves by John Plummer( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 1,410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When this volume first appeared in 1966, it was celebrated for its extraordinary beauty. Now, more than thirty-five years since its first publication, it is made available once again. Illustrating one of the great art treasures of the world. The Hours of Catherine of Cleves is a fifteenth-century illuminated manuscript containing a series of some of the most beautiful illustrations of the Bible ever made. Many of the great scenes from the Old Testament and many more from the New Testament are included, along with the Stations of the Cross and portraits of the saints." "The work of an unidentified Dutch master painter, the manuscript was made for Catherine of Cleves on the occasion of her marriage to the Duke of Guelders. All 157 surviving miniatures are reproduced to actual size and in exquisite color with gold, together with three samples of the pages containing Latin prayers. Page after page reveals the elaborate program and rich illumination of the original. The images show an artist increasing in skill, relying in his earlier work on tradition and later emerging as an independent artist of bold, clear colors, dynamic brushwork, and lively imagination." "Each page is accompanied by descriptive commentary by John Plummer. His introduction discusses the development of the Book of Hours as a liturgical form in general, and the history of the Cleves Hours specifically, and describes the place it holds in the history of Northern painting."--Jacket

Blake as an artist by David Bindman( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I have attempted to approach the Illuminated Books from an art-historical point of view, a task which would have been impossible if the general consensus upon their meaning had not been established in the last few years, primarily by literary scholars. I am now convinced that Blake's mythology can be made sufficiently comprehensible to allow one to discuss his subject matter in a way comparable to that of any other artist of the past, but I am also aware that many scholars regard the Illuminated Books as more complex in thought than I do. It is clear to me that the Illuminated Books are not a self-contained aspect of Blake's work, but contribute directly to the understanding of the seemingly more conventional designs for the Bible, for Milton and for other writers. A central assumption of this book is that there is a fundamental unity between Blake's art and his writing, but my focus has still been predominantly upon the art, and I have made literary judgments only when they affect the argument. - Introduction
