Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

French Illuminated Manuscripts in the J. Paul Getty Museum introduces the public to the richness of the J. Paul Getty Museum's holdings in French manuscripts from the ninth to the eighteenth century.

This book showcases full-color reproductions of masterpieces from such works as Carolingian manuscripts of the ninth century; several sumptuously illuminated Ottonian texts from the late tenth and early eleventh centuries; two of the most celebrated examples of Romanesque illumination: the Helmarshausen Gospel book from the 1120s and the Stammheim Missal, made around 1170 for Saint Michael's monestary in Hildesheim; The Life of the Blessed Hedwig from 1353, and the only known illuminations by the Cologne painter called the Master of Saint Veronica, ca. 1400. It also illustrates many richly colored illuminations from such manuscripts as a luxury psalter made in Würzburg, dating from the mid-thirteenth century; a copy of Rudolf von Ems's Weltchronik, produced in the early fifteenth century; and chivalric and dynastic manuscripts from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century.

Book News Annotation:

Getty Publications presents the second volume in a series for the general reader about the J. Paul Getty Museum's collection of illuminated manuscripts. Written by the Museum's curator of manuscripts, the text celebrates the achievement of French manuscript illumination in the Middle Ages, from a Carolingian Bible of the ninth century to a diminutive devotional book of the 18th century. An introductory essay is followed by some 120 full-color, full-page reproductions from the Museum's collection. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

French Illuminated Manuscripts in the J. Paul Getty Museum introduces the public to the richness of the J. Paul Getty Museum's holdings in French manuscripts from the ninth to the eighteenth century.

This volume includes full-color reproductions of masterpieces from such works as a bible from ninth-century Tours; a sacramentary attributed to Nivardus of Milan from the first quarter of the eleventh century; the Shah Abbas Bible, made in northern France about 1250; a book of hours made in the atelier of the Bedford Master in Paris about 1450; and a book of prayers of the mass, written and illuminated in Paris by Jean Pierre Rousselet about 1720-30. It also includes many multiple illuminations from such manuscripts as a psalter by the Master of the Ingeborg Psalter, made after 1205 and probably in Noyon; the Wenceslaus Psalter from 1250; and the Boucicaut Master's illuminated manuscript of Boccaccio's Des cas des nobles hommes et femmes from about 1415.
