9781872501697: The Utrecht Psalter in Medieval Art: Picturing the Psalms of David (Studies in Medieval and Early Renaissance Art History)

The Utrecht Psalter is a masterpiece of Carolingian manuscript production. Rarely has the manuscript been on public display but in 1996 it formed the focus of an exhibition in Utrecht. Five lengthy essays discuss the manuscript and its context, accompanied by a catalogue of the 40 comparative items with which it was displayed. Rosamund Mckitterick discusses the historical context, Koert van der Horst introduces the manuscript itself, the text, its history, production and interpretation; Kathleen Corrigan looks at early medieval psalter illustration; Florentine Mutherich examines Carolingian illumination in Rheims and William Noel looks at its influence on English work. The catalogue which follows includes comparative manuscipts, ivories, crystals and seals with illustrations and bibliographies.

Book Description Brepols N.V., Belgium, 1996. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Utrecht Psalter, one of the great survivals of the Carolingian Renaissance, was made about 820-835 at the Benedictine monastery of Hautvilliers and decorated with 166 dynamic, almost impressionistic pen drawings which are masterly interpretation of the Psalter text. In 1996 it was exhibited in Utrecht, alongside related manuscripts such as the Aachen and Ebbo Gospels, the Byzantine Khludov Psalter and the later English Harly and Eadwine Psalters, copied in Canterbury when the Utrecht Psalter was for some centuries in England. Five scholarly essays, designed for a wide-ranging readership, include a discussion of Carolingian cultural achievements; an analysis of the Psalter itself and its place in the history of book production; an overview of medieval Psalter illustration in both Byzantium and the West; and an exa- mination of the English copies of the Utrect Psalter in the later Middle Ages.
