COLOUR: THE ART AND SCIENCE OF ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPTS. S. Panayotova. Fitzwilliam Museum, University of Cambridge, 2016. Published by Harvey Miller Publishers, Brepols Publishers, Turnhout. Studies in Medieval and Early Renaissance Art History. 420 pp. with 414 col. ills. ISBN 9781909400566 In English.
Publisher's description: Of all the early medieval and Renaissance arts -- from sculptures, ivories, frescoes, stained glass to easel and wall paintings -- it is manuscript illumination, protected between its pages, that has been able to preserve the best evidence for experiencing the dazzling effects that the gold, silver and original glowing colors these objects would have had on earlier spectators. The focus therefore of this exciting and innovative exhibition is on COLOUR: it demonstrates and explains the acquisition and chemistry of pigments, the basic materials and constitution of the artist's color palette, the technique and art of their application by the illuminator, and finally the understanding and aesthetic impact on the viewer.
