As-Vijvers, Anne Margreet W. Re-making the Margin: The Master of the David Scenes and Flemish Manuscript Painting around 1500. Trans. Diana Webb. Ars nova 11. Turnhout: Brepols, 2013. [Publisher's description: "The subject of the present publication is the working practices of the Ghent-Bruges illuminators, active in Flanders in the decades around 1500. Its focus is on manuscripts featuring freestanding, isolated motifs painted in the margins of text pages. The author traces how this decorative system was created by the Master of the David Scenes in the Grimani Breviary, a prolific inventor of appealing borders; how it was applied by his closest collaborators, and how it was imitated and adapted by other illuminators. Among these were Simon Bening, the Carmelite sister Cornelia van Wulfschkercke, and a number of anonymous masters, including several whose oeuvres are identified here for the first time. The author elucidates the sources for the isolated motifs and demonstrates how the codicological structure of the manuscripts provides insight into the use and the dispersion of various models for border decorations. The book discusses the famous strewn-flower borders and other types of fully decorated borders as well. The author analyses the isolated motifs in relationship to the page lay-out and the decorative programme of Ghent-Bruges standardised books of hours. The stylistic examination of both the miniatures and the borders of the manuscripts under discussion completes the integrated approach of this study. The author demonstrates how the illuminators collaborated with each other and exchanged artistic models for the illumination of these precious manuscripts."] [* Subject heading: manuscript production; decoration and illustration (illuminations); Flemish manuscripts; Flanders; Books of Hours *]

[Publisher's description: "In recent years, scholars have increasingly acknowledged the range and value of the literary and artistic production of both France and Burgundy in the later Middle Ages. . . . Key critical issues raised in these essays include the political circumstances governing the production and reception of late medieval texts, whether in manuscript or printed form; the significance of the representational strategies and painterly choices adopted by book illustrators; the evolving role of women as authors, artists, and consumers of medieval manuscripts and early printed books; and the ways in which the written, visual and even aural aspects of these texts could be combined together to cue the reader/viewer's response. Engaging with the materiality of literary works through the prism of text/image relations, the volume makes fruitful connections between the literary and artistic spheres which are so often studied in isolation from each other."] [Contents: Introduction, Rosalind Brown-Grant.

[Publisher's description: "The psalter has a central place in the history of medieval book illustration: no other text was so regularly provided with illuminations over such a long period, and no other text came to have such a complex and wide-ranging iconography. The techniques of psalter illumination involved, for example, historiated initials, full page miniatures as preliminary series as well as on the points of text division, and marginal illustrations, all this in cyclical or serial fashion. . . . The essays in this volume originated at a colloquium held in Bamberg in 1999. . . .

Carlvant, Kerstin. Manuscript Painting in Thirteenth-Century Flanders: Bruges, Ghent and the Circle of the Counts. Studies in Medieval and Early Renaissance Art History 63. London: Harvey Miller, 2012. [Publisher's description: "This is the first comprehensive and in-depth study of the earliest figural painting ever to have been produced in Flanders on a continual basis. Most of the manuscripts are Psalters, but Bibles, a Breviary, a Missal, a Netherlandic life of a saint, and yet other texts occur. Three main categories of illuminator are distinguishable: those working in Bruges, in Ghent, and, at least in part, for the circle of the counts of Flanders. The principal chapters and the catalog segments are organized around their individual contributions. An arrangement in time and place of the total body of work was obtained through a lengthy and rigorous process of comparison of figural, ornamental and writing styles, codicological and textual features. Several distinctive Flemish patterns of Psalter iconography have emerged; these are presented in tabular form with accompanying commentaries. A surprising amount of information about the early owners of the books, mostly well-to-do members of the laity, was yielded in the analysis for the manuscript catalogs."] [* Subject heading: Manuscript production: decoration and illustration; Flemish, thirteenth-century *]

Coleman, Janet, Mark Cruse, Kathryn A. Smith, eds. The Social Life of Illumination: Manuscripts, Images, and Communities in the Late Middle Ages. Medieval Texts and Cultures of Northern Europe 21. Turnhout: Brepols, 2013. [Publisher's description: "This anthology is the first broadly based exploration of an issue now emerging at the intersection of art history and literary study: how the interplay of images and texts in medieval manuscripts enabled an array of social interactions that helped shape individual and communal experience and identities. An interdisciplinary group of scholars, from Art History, English, and French departments, has combined to explore the ways in which pictures in a book can have a 'social life.' Setting aside the traditional assumption that illuminated manuscripts were meant chiefly for the eyes of solitary reader-viewers, the essays in this anthology demonstrate that illuminations took on social dimension in many ways. They could cue internal dialogues with religious figures or family members; they could be described, explained, and/or viewed communally during public readings; and they could draw their viewers into joint celebration of core secular or religious values. As much as architectural monuments, contracts, and rituals, illuminations provide a way for us to map the multiple dimensions of medieval social life."] [Contents: "Introduction: The Social Life of Illumination," Joyce Coleman, Mark Cruse, and Kathryn A.

Geddes, Jane. The St. Albans Psalter: A Book for Christina of Markyate. London: British Library, 2005. [Publisher's description: "The St Albans Psalter, made in the 1130s, is one of the great monuments of English Romanesque painting and has survived the disasters of religious upheaval and war in pristine condition. The sequence of forty full-page miniatures illustrating the Life of Christ establishes their artist, the so-called Alexis Master, as one of the most influential painters in early twelfth-century England. It includes 215 initials illustrating the psalms in a vigorously literal way. Their inventiveness and charm belie the complex theological and personal messages which they convey. This new book by Dr. Jane Geddes is the first to reproduce so much of the psalter in color, but it also fully integrates the psalter's contents into the historical context of its probable patron, Abbot Geoffrey of St Albans and its recipient, the Anglo-Saxon hermitess Christina of Markyate. Using a record of Christina's life, written by a St Albans monk, the book examines in depth every aspect of the psalter, tying it in closely to the lives of Christina of Markyate and Abbot Geoffrey. Through her close analysis, Geddes provides a profound insight into female literacy, Anglo-Norman relations, the organization of England's premier scriptorium, monk-nun relations and the emerging Anglo-Norman language. This new book demonstrates the significance of the St Albans Psalter, which in social terms is as important as the Bayeux Tapestry, crystallising the artistic, spiritual and emotional integration of Anglo-Saxons and Normans."] [* Subject heading: manuscript production; decoration and illustration (illumination); manuscript culture; The St. Albans Psalter (Hildesheim, Dombibliothek zu Hildesheim, MS.

Kennedy, Kathleen E. The Courtly and Commercial Art of the Wycliffite Bible. Medieval Church Studies 35. Turnhout: Brepols, 2014. [Publisher's description: "Nearly half the existing copies of the Wycliffite Bible are illuminated. This book offers the first sustained, critical examination of the decoration of Wycliffite Bibles. This study has found that many copies were decorated by the most prominent border and initial artists of their eras. Many more were modeled on these styles. Such highly regarded artists had little to gain from producing volumes that might lead them to trial as heretics and ultimately to the stake. This unprecedented study contributes to recent revisionist criticism and troubles long-standing assumptions about Wycliffism and the Wycliffite Bible. It contends that the manuscript record simply does not support a stark interpretation of the Wycliffite Bible as a marginalized text. Rather, this study reveals a prolific and vibrant textual exchange within the book culture of late medieval England."] [* Subject Heading: Manuscript production: decoration and illustration; Wycliffe Bible; 16th century England; illuminated manuscripts *]

The Macclesfield Psalter: A Window into the World of Late Medieval England. Text Stella Panayotova; photographs Andrew Morris. Cambridge: Fitzwilliam Museum, 2005. [The Macclesfield Psalter was unknown to scholars until quite recently, when the library of Shirburn Castle (the Earls of Macclesfield) was put up for auction in 2004; the manuscript was purchased by the J. Paul Getty Museum, but it was ruled that the manuscript ought not to be exported, so funds were raised for the Fitzwilliam Museum to purchase it, and it is now their MS 1-2005. This volume, released shortly after the purchase of the manuscript, offers a brief introduction to the manuscript and its extensive illuminations. ] [* Subject heading: manuscript production; decoration and illustration (illuminations); manuscript culture; Cambridge, Fitzwilliam Museum, MS 1-2005 (olim Earls of Macclesfield, Shirburn Castle) *]

Marrow, James H. Pictorial Invention in the Netherlandish Manuscript Illumination of the Late Middle Ages: The Play of Illusion and Meaning. Corpus of Illuminated Manuscripts 16; Low Countries Series 11. Leuven: Peeters, 2005. [Publisher's description: "In this book, James H. Marrow discusses prominent features of many of the most exuberant illuminated manuscripts created by leading Flemish illuminators of the 15th and the 16th centuries, considering both the playful ways in which the makers of these books reconfigured their design and the ways they exploited these innovations to define and convey the meaning of their contents more effectively. Marrow considers how the designers of these manuscripts broke down the barriers between the different components of the book; how the shapes of some manuscripts became a kind of image; how script sometimes became decoration or one of several illusionistically treated elements or fields on the page; and how decoration and illustration were intermixed in diverse, witty, and provocative fashions. In this final stage in the evolution of the medieval book, leading Flemish illuminators fundamentally changed the structural dynamics of the page, enlarging its fields of visual and pictorial interest and exploiting novel juxtapositions of subject matter and scale, of viewpoint and different kinds of illusionism, to guide viewers beyond the here-and-now, to evoke multiple and alternative levels of truth, and to effect profound transformations of understanding. This is an incisive study of the course of these developments in the Low Countries and of some of the important ways in which they engaged issues central to the function of the visual arts."] [Contents: Illusionism and book design in Netherlandish manuscript illumination -- Pictorial meaning in illusionistic manuscript illumination -- Illusionism and the world of the beholder: The speculum consciencie.] [* Subject heading: manuscript production; manuscript decoration and illustration (illumination); manuscript culture; Netherlands *]

Yet illuminated manuscripts, rarely seen except by scholars and curators, offer some of the best evidence for our understanding of early Netherlandish painting through a remarkable period of 150 years. Unlike paintings, which have been varnished, cleaned, repainted and exposed to light, the illuminations kept secure within the bindings of a book retain their original colour and clarity of definition."] [* Subject heading: manuscript decoration and illustration (illumination); manuscript culture; manuscripts (catalogues: exhibition) *]

Subsequent monarchs added to this library, which was given to the nation by George II in 1757. Over 150 examples from this exceptional collection are presented in this catalogue, which accompanies a major British Library exhibition of the same name.

Scholarly essays in this book explore issues crucial to the establishment of his distinctinve style: originality, technique, color palette, influence, levels of resemblance, the relationships between artistic media, and patronage.

Sandler, Lucy Freeman. The Lichtenthal Psalter and the Manuscript Patronage of the Bohun Family. Studies in Medieval and Early Renaissance Art History 38. London: Harvey Miller, 2004. [Publisher's description: "The recent discovery of an unknown fourteenth-century English manuscript in a German Cistercian convent has brought to light an exquisite, richly illustrated psalter, which is analysed and illustrated here for the first time. Although this remarkable find in Lichtenthal Abbey, near Baden-Baden, had been identified as belonging to a group of manuscripts associated with the prominent and royally-connected Bohun family, neither its illustrations nor its relationship to other Bohun manuscripts had until now been fully explored. In tracing the history of the Bohun family and their manuscript patronage, Professor Sandler places the Lichtenthal Psalter as a product of the 1380s in company with three other psalters of similar format, each produced by the closely knit groupt of scibes and artists who worked in the Bohun family residence at Pleshley Castle in Essex. She describes in detail the contents of the manuscript, its text and decoration, and offers evocative descriptions and penetrating interpretations of the meticulously depicted images that illustrate the Calendar, the Psalms, and the Office of the Cross. The author also examines in particular the style and execution of the historiated initials and bas-de-page Old Testament scences that illustrate the psalms in a continuous narrative sequence from the Creation to the Life of Moses. She compares these to the pictorial programs of the related Bohun psalters, and provides further evidence for the identification of the scribes and artists whose skill and inventiveness created one of the most outstanding group of illuminated manuscripts in fourteenth-century England. Every full-page miniature in the Lichtenthal Psalter is here reproduced in colour and in the size of the original. In addition there are enlarged detail reproductions in black-and-white of many of the intricate and tiny figure compositions that illustrate the biblical narrative, as well as comparative illustrations of other related Bohun manuscripts. The latter are listed in full, with relevant literature, in an Appendix."] [Contents: Introduction: The Bohun Family and Their Manuscript Patronage -- The Lichtenthal Psalter Description, Commentary and Illustrations -- Text -- Heraldry -- Decoration -- Calendar -- Psalms and Canticles -- Office of the Cross -- The Artistic and Historical Context -- The Lichtenthal Psalter and the Bohun Manuscripts -- The Later History of the Lichtenthal Psalter -- List of Bohun Manuscripts -- Added and Deleted Calendar Entries.] [* Subject heading: manuscript culture; manuscript decoration and illustration (illumination); devotional literature; religion and literature; patrons and patronage; Baden-Baden, Lichtenthal Abbey *]

Scott, Kathleen L. "Design, Decoration and Illustration." In Book Production and Publishing in Britain 1375-1475. Ed. Jeremy Griffiths and Derek Pearsall. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1989. Pp. 31-64. [Of 40,000 surviving manuscripts from the late 14th to the early 16th centuries, at least 1000 were illustrated and another 2000 had elaborately decorated borders. Borders, mainly significant as textual division markers, must have been meant to delight since they were so elaborate: simple coloured bands would have served if they were only meant to be functional. Even decoration was "significant and signifying." The most often illustrated works were medical and scientific works, followed by Latin works, histories, Books of Hours, English and French vernacular works including Chaucer, and so on. Lydgate's and Gower's works figure prominently among illustrated books both having been illustrated ("disconcertingly") more often than Chaucer. Typical features of illustration include heraldic arms, miniature portraits enclosed within decorated capitals, half-page and quarter-page miniatures in bar-frames, as well as full-page illustrations. Decoration included bar-frames, frame corners and frame mid-points emphasized with acanthus blooms, horn flowers, floral roundels, vine stubs, vine sprays and pen squiggles. The most elaborate decoration and illustration was saved for major textual divisions with simpler decoration in other parts of the text [abstract by John Morris].] [* Subject heading: manuscript decoration and illustration (illumination) *]

[Publisher's description: "This study of the two-volume Lambeth Bible, one of the premier Romanesque giant bibles, concerns itself with its textual makeup as well as its magnificent illumination. It reports the results of research on texts and imagery found in over a hundred English and continental Romanesque Bibles. Comparative study of the prefatory materials in these Bibles yielded significant new understandings of their importance and represents a major conclusion of this study. They are important aids in establishing places of origin of biblical manuscripts and in the study of the illumination chosen for them. Exhaustive study of the prologues, chapter lists, and other miscellaneous texts in both volumes of the Lambeth Bible and other English Bibles, has helped to establish that the Lambeth Bible was not made at St. Albans or at Christ Church, Canterbury, two of the sites often suggested for its production. Six beautiful miniatures and thirty-one historiated initials remain in the Lambeth Bible so examination of their iconography is a major aspect of this book. This study includes both a search for visual and textual models for the imagery used in the Lambeth Bible and an investigation of the significance of those subjects in the twelfth century. In a surprising number of cases a relationship existed between the prologue preceding a biblical book and the imagery with which it was illuminated."] [Contents: Part 1: The manuscript.

Watteeuw, L., and J. Van der Stock, eds. The Anjou Bible: A Royal Manuscript Revealed; Naples 1340. Corpus of Illuminated Manuscripts 18; Low Countries Series 13. Leuven: Peeters, 2010. [Publisher's description: "The Anjou Bible, now kept in the Theology Faculty's Maurits Sabbe Library of the University of Leuven (Belgium) is a superbly illuminated manuscript created at the Royal Court of Naples in the turbulent fourteenth century. At this time much of Central and Southern Europe was governed by the successful dynasty of Anjou, which continued to expand its territories and encouraged artists and writers like Giotto, Simone Martini, Boccaccio and Petrarch. In 1328, after the death of her father, Joanna of Anjou became the official heir to the prosperous Kingdom of Naples and Sicily. Several years later her grandfather, Robert I, gave Joanna and her young fiancé Andrew of Hungary a precious gift, which became known as the Anjou Bible, a manuscript that is priceless from a historical and art-historical point of view. In addition to Bible texts and splendid miniatures, it contains a wealth of historical information about the house of Anjou and the book's origins. One of the artists responsible for the magnificent painting was Cristophorus Orimina, the leading illuminator in Naples, who signed the work. The Anjou Bible has now been carefully conserved and studied: the research findings are brought together in this book. Essays by some of the most noted experts in the field describe how the arts were promoted at the court of Robert I of Anjou and also shed light on the Bible's genesis and on all the research methods and results.

Weekes, Ursula. Early Engravers and their Public: The Master of the Berlin Passion and Manuscripts from Convents in the Rhine-Maas Region, ca. 1450-1500. Studies in Medieval and Early Renaissance Art History 39. London: Harvey Miller, 2004. [Publisher's description: "This is a book about the production and reception of engravings and metalcuts in the Rhine-Maas region during the second half of the fifteenth century. The Master of the Berlin Passion played a pivotal role in the print-making industry of the Lower Rhine during this period. He, together with the engravers working in his ambit, specifically targeted their prints at the growing market for illustrated devotional manuscripts, doing so to an extent unparalleled by engravers elsewhere in Europe. As a result, experimental hybrid books combining manuscript and engraving were a phenomenon that flourished particularly in the Rhine-Maas region during the fifteenth century. The first part of this book deals with the production of engravings and metalcuts for the manuscript market, concentrating specifically on the Master of the Berlin Passion and the engravers and metalcutters in his circle. The motives of these printmakers related to broader cultural and social changes during the latter half of the fifteenth century. These were critical years of transition in methods of book production as printmakers and manuscript-makers across Europe strove to exploit the potential of new print technology combined with traditional craft skills. The second part of the book concentrates on the public for whom these printmakers worked. Prints that were pasted, bound or sewn into contemporary manuscripts, and which still remain in position, provide an unparalleled opportunity to study the audiences of engravings and metalcuts. . . . The predominantly female ownership of Rhine-Maas manuscripts with inserted engravings is a major theme of the book. Most of the manuscripts discussed are vernacular prayerbooks or Books of Hours that belonged either to nuns or to members of the lay female gentry in the Low Countries. In many cases the books can be linked to the pietistic reform movement of the Devotio Moderna suggesting that, as in other areas of Northern Europe, there was a link between the use of prints and movements of monastic reform. This book contributes to our understanding of an important circle of print artists and their public; early uses of printing during the period of transition from manuscript to print; the functions of, and aesthetic attitudes towards, engravings in the fifteenth century and the role of engravings in religious devotion prior to the Reformation, particularly among women."] [* Subject heading: manuscript culture; manuscript decoration and illustration (illumination); engraving *]
