The Anjou Bible: a royal manuscript revealed : Naples 1340( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Anjou Bible, now kept in the Theology Faculty's Maurits Sabbe Library of the University of Leuven (Belgium) is a superbly illuminated manuscript created at the Royal Court of Naples in the turbulent fourteenth century. At this time much of Central and Southern Europe was governed by the successful dynasty of Anjou, which continued to expand its territories and encouraged artists and writers like Giotto, Simone Martini, Boccaccio and Petrarch. In 1328, after the death of her father, Joanna of Anjou became the official heir to the prosperous Kingdom of Naples and Sicily. Several years later her grandfather, Robert I, gave Joanna and her young fiancé Andrew of Hungary a precious gift, which became known as the Anjou Bible, a manuscript that is priceless from a historical and art-historical point of view. In addition to Bible texts and splendid miniatures, it contains a wealth of historical information about the house of Anjou and the book's origins. One of the artists responsible for the magnificent painting was Cristophorus Orimina, the leading illuminator in Naples, who signed the work. The Anjou Bible has now been carefully conserved and studied: the research findings are brought together in this book. Essays by some of the most noted experts in the field describe how the arts were promoted at the court of Robert I of Anjou and also shed light on the Bible's genesis and on all the research methods and results. This book is richly illustrated and contains all the illuminated folios of the Anjou Bible."--
Catalogue of illuminated manuscripts, Museum Plantin-Moretus, Antwerp by Lieve Watteeuw( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in 3 languages and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the 16th to the 19th century, illuminated manuscripts were collected by the great printer-publisher Christophe Plantin and his Moretus successors and descendants. Ranging in date from the 9th to the mid-16th centuries, the manuscripts in the Museum Plantin-Moretus come from all over Europe, chiefly the Southern Netherlands and France with a significant representation of 15th-century Dutch illumination. More surprisingly, about a quarter of the collection comes from England: manuscripts of the 10th to 15th centuries that left the country with Catholic refugees. Alongside the acknowledged masterpieces and rarities, like the Bohemian Bible of 1402, are volumes that have remained virtually unknown, their aesthetic appeal and historical or textual interest often passing unnoticed in the absence of published reproductions. In this beautifully produced catalogue, each of the 102 volumes is illustrated in colour, with more extensive coverage of the 55 volumes with the most rewarding illumination. For the first time it is possible to gauge the extent and nature of this fascinating and under-explored collection, still housed in the building on the Vrijdagmarkt in Antwerp to which Plantin moved his famous sign of the Golden Compasses in 1576."--
New perspectives on Flemish illumination( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Proceedings of the Colloquium 'New Perspectives on Flemish Illuminations' constitute an overview of recent research into manuscript illumination in Flanders under the Dukes of Burgundy. In 1959 Leon Delaisse organized the seminal exhibition 'La miniature flamande. Le mecenat de Philippe le Bon' (Flemish Illumination. The Patronage of Philip the Good). Seen in Brussels, Amsterdam and Paris, it was a ground-breaking initiative. In 2015, more than fifty years later, our knowledge of the illuminated manuscript in the Southern Netherlands during the Burgundian period has vastly increased, as revealed in the exhibition 'Miniatures flamandes 1404-1482' (Flemish Miniatures 1404-1482) held in Brussels and Paris in 2011-2012. The associated Colloquium stimulated fifteen papers, by leading specialists in the field, presented here in five sections. The first concentrates on individual illuminators: Jan de Tavernier, the Master of the Houghton Miniatures, the Painters of Philip the Good's Alexander and Loyset Liedet; the second considers text, traditions and images; the third, on the relationships between illumination and panel painting, is followed by codicological studies developing the topics of artistic Interchange, border decoration and portraits in musical manuscripts. The final section consists of technical studies of grisaille illuminations and methods of flesh painting. Through new research techniques and topics, together with established approaches such as connoisseurship and codicology, the papers advance our understanding of the intentions, processes, chronology and geographic distribution of Flemish manuscript production."--
Enclosed gardens of Mechelen : late medieval paradise gardens revealed by Symposium for the Study of Underdrawing and Technology in Painting( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 41 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

It almost seemed a lily by Berlinde de Bruyckere( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Belgian artist Berlinde De Bruyckere's most recent work is inspired by the sixteenth-century artefacts known as the Enclosed Gardens. The Gardens are small wooden cabinets filled with a profusion of artefacts, ranging from handmade sculptures to flowers and animals in silk, and including wax medallions and fabric-wrapped bone relics. De Bruyckere senses a natural affinity between her work and these wonderful microcosms, which were part of the spiritual world of the sisters of the Hospital of Our Lady in Mechelen, who crafted them with the utmost care and devotion.With her series 'It almost seemed a lily', De Bruyckere enters into a dialogue with the seven Enclosed Gardens of Mechelen, which are now recognised as masterpieces. She has created monumental wooden frames that house the tender silhouette of a flower, the latter of which is composed of a multitude of materials that can conceal as much as they reveal. The imposing dimensions of the frames contrast with the fragility of their interiors. Just as the sumptuous Gardens stimulate the imagination and suggest a paradisiacal 'garden', the material stratification and interwoven contrasts in De Bruyckere's works also evoke another time and space, a Utopia. 00Exhibition: Museum Hof van Busleyden, Mechelen, Belgium (15.12.2018 - 12.05.2019)
