Catalogue of an exhibition organized by the Pierpont Morgan Library, March 1-May 6, 1990. With an introduction on the nature and development of Dutch miniature painting by Professor Marrow. From the blurb: "During the fifteenth century a large number of the most glorious manuscript illuminations were created in the Dutch artistic centers of Delft, Haarlem and Utrecht. In The Golden Age of Dutch Manuscript Painting, scholars from The Netherlands and The United States place Dutch manuscript painting in its historical and art historical context, and present new information on these strikingly beautiful works. Now, for the first time, we may distinguish the artistic styles of the centers, and discover new attributions for a number of well-known illuminations. We will see how manuscript painting was brought to a high state of perfection in the Northern Netherlands during the fifteenth century. Divided into 18 chapters ordered chronologically by Masters or Workshops, this volume presents ideal settings for such long-admired works as the masterful Hours of Catherine of Cleves and the Egmont Breviary. Magnificent syntheses of art and religion, painting and calligraphy, these works of art, like many others in this book, remain as profound and delightful today as when first created."
