Exhibition Now Closed

The special exhibition Pen and Parchment: Drawing in the Middle Ages closed on Sunday, August 23. Although my colleagues and I will no longer be writing new posts, we will continue to publish your comments and answer your questions for the next few weeks.

Many of you will also be interested in the Museum’s upcoming exhibition The Art of Illumination: The Limbourg Brothers and the Belles Heures of Jean de France, Duc de Berry, opening March 2, 2010, which will focus on one of the masterpieces of medieval book illumination.

Thank you for your interest and participation in this exciting project.

    Will this exhibition travel anywhere else; and/or are some of the items that were included in the exhibition available for viewing anywhere else in the Metropolitan Museum? Thanks for any information you can provide.

    Dear Nevin,
    The exhibition is not traveling to any other venue, and the manuscripts will be soon returning to their homes. But the Hours of Jeanne d’Evreux will once again be on display at the Cloisters, and the Morgan Library frequently features manuscript exhibitions. Modern New York is filled with works of medieval art!

    I have so very much enjoyed these. I wrote my first art history paper on the Hours of Jeanne d’Evreux in the early 1960s, and will look forward with keen anticipation to the Duc de Berry exhibition. Thank you!

    I really enjoyed this exhibit!

    Will the blog remain available? I would like to read it in more detail and study the images, but that will take a while. Thanks!
