Book - 1998
Rate this:
This collection of essays published in honour of Janet Blackhouse, Curator of Illuminated Manuscripts at The British Library who retired in 1998 after a 35-year at the British Museum and Library. Twenty scholars and collegues have contributed essays reflecting Janet Blackhouse's own research interests, particularly in the later Middle Ages and Renaissance, and in the interaction between English collectors and continental book producers. The essays are grouped in three main themes: Interpreters, in which the manuscripts are explored through issues of iconography and style; Makers in which patrons, named artists or school and their relationships are discussed; and Owners, in which the authors consider aspects of provenance and collecting history.
