slide_3

April 29 through June 10, 2017

Opening: MADISON AVENUE GALLERY WALK Saturday, April 29, 2017

The works presented here – manuscripts, miniatures, drawings, and rings – offer a meaningful counterpoint to more recent artistic productions and celebrate the legacy of thoughtful collecting from generations past and present. Highlights of the exhibition include a majestic two volume illustrated manuscript made in the court of King Charles V (reigned 1364-1380), a masterpiece of French Gothic manuscript illumination known as the “Soisson Missal”, a miniature attributed to a follower of Giovanni di Paolo from the collection of Lord Clark of Saltwood, and a Roman ring with message of friendship hidden in its intricate open-work.
