    Illuminated Manuscript Leaf: Large leaf with miniature of the Coronation of the Virgin from a French Book of Hours [ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT]. AN UNUSUALLY LARGE LEAF FROM A LATE 15TH-CENTURY FRENCH BOOK OF HOURS WITH A MINIATURE OF THE CORONATION OF THE VIRGIN WITH SUPERB COLOR AND IN PARTICULARLY FINE CONDITION.   #PolonskyPre How did medieval artists make their manuscripts shine? Patricia Lovett explores the work behind painting and embellishing manuscripts and reproduces a lavishly illuminated page. The taste for illuminated manuscripts spread more and more, and important studios of illuminators arose, the heads of which often furnished sketches of miniatures to be executed. On the other hand the illuminations took a more and more important place at the expense of the text.   Bloomsbury Auctions Books and Manuscripts; British and European Ceramics and Glass; British and European Sculpture and Works of Art; Clocks, Barometers and Scientific Instruments; Coins and Medals; Decorative Arts since ; Fine Art; Furniture, Rugs and Carpets; House Sales and Private Collections; Islamic and Near Eastern Books and.
