About this Item

quarto, 359pp. This book examines attitudes toward and treatments of medieval manuscript illumination in France and England in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and in early twentieth-century America. Each chapter takes as its title a word used in a particular period to define manuscript illumination: Curiosities, Specimens, Reproductions, Revivals, and Reconstructions. Trends and developments examined include the Enlightenment assessment of medieval miniatures as barbaric playthings, the nineteenth-century growth of a market for medieval art, the impact of reproductive technology on taste for illumination and the early twentieth- century importation of medieval manuscripts to the United States as a means through which to appropriate the history and culture of a European past.
