Seventy Italian, French, Flemish, and Germanic illuminations from historical, literary, or liturgical manuscripts, dominated by the masterpieces of Lorenzo Monaco, Jean Fouquet, Guillaume Vrelant, Simon Bening, and Giulio Clovio.
The Louvre’s collection of illuminations remains little known, despite the famous masterpieces it comprises. The publication of the collection’s catalogue raisonné is an opportunity to discover these exquisite works.
