Illuminated with spectacular miniatures and borders in glittering gold and splendid colors for Catherine of Cleves, Duchess of Guelders, this stunning manuscript is arguably the most beautiful ever produced in the Northern Netherlands. The craftsmanship of the anonymous artist who created it is visible in every extraordinary detail of the many leaves. This stunning volume is published in conjunction with an exhibition of the same name at the Morgan Library in New York .The book presents more than 100 leaves of the manuscript, which contains some of the most beautiful illustrations of the Bible ever made, including important scenes from the Old and New Testaments as well as the Stations of the Cross and portraits of the saints. The text discusses the work’s patron, its artist, and the accomplishments of his contemporaries. With exquisite new photography, close-up details, and an in-depth discussion of the manuscript, this is the essential volume on a masterpiece.
