Choirs of Angels: Painting in Italian Choir Books, 1300-1500

Metroploitan Museum of Art, November 25, 2008-April 12, 2009.

More than two dozen leaves of the most splendid examples from the Museum´s little-known collection of choral manuscript illuminations will be exhibited, coinciding with the publication of a Museum Bulletin devoted to the subject. With jewel-like color and gold, these precious images - which include scenes of singing angels, Hebrew prophets, heroic saints, and Renaissance princes - spring from the unique, artful marriage of painting, text, and music. The Museum´s collection includes works created for churches across Italy, from Florence to Venice, from Cremona to Naples, by some of the most celebrated painters of their day. Accompanied by a Museum Bulletin.
