Iluminated Manuscripts of Germany and Central Europe

This beautifully illustrated volume explores the richness of the J. Paul Getty Museum´s holdings in German and Central European manuscripts from the ninth to the eighteenth century. The book features full-color reproductions of masterpieces from such works as Carolingian manuscripts of the ninth century; several sumptuously illuminated Ottonian texts from the late tenth and early eleventh centuries; two of the most celebrated examples of Romanesque illumination: the Helmarshausen Gospel book from the 1120s and the Stammheim Missal, made around 1170 for Saint Michael´s monastery in Hildesheim; The Life of the Blessed Hedwig, from 1353; and the only known illuminations by the Cologne painter called the Master of Saint Veronica, from about 1400. It also illustrates many richly colored illuminations from such manuscripts as a luxury psalter made in Würzburg, dating from the mid-thirteenth century; a copy of Rudolf von Ems´s Weltchronik, produced in the early fifteenth century; and chivalric and dynastic manuscripts from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century.
