About this title


Experimenting with a new technique of painting with enamel on copper, the artists of Limoges in central France founded an industry in the late 15th-century that continues to this day. For nearly 200 years they produced plaques and display pieces that were prized throughout Europe and inspired a full-scale revival of the art in the later 19th-century. Among their masterpieces were colourful devotional polyptychs, portrait series or scenes from literature, painted vessels and sets of calendar plates recording the cycle of the seasons. Limoges enamels are an important and delightful manifestation of the culture of Renaissance France and a virtual compendium of European medieval, Renaissance and Mannerist painting and graphic arts. The painters absorbed the full range of contemporary imagery and disseminated it to customers and patrons ranging from village clergy to the French monarchy.

From the Back Cover:

The collection of enamels in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art comprises forty-five works by many of the major enamel painters of the Renaissance.The museum's collection is catalogued in detailed entries that include photographic documentation of all decorated surfaces, as well as comparative illustrations of the printed sources from which the images were derived.
