Symposium:  Fragmented Illuminations, Victoria & Albert Museum, 7-8 July, 2022

 As a follow-up to the display Fragmented Illuminations: Medieval and Renaissance Manuscript Cuttings at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London (now extended to 26 June), a symposium will take place online on 7-8 July (pm). The Fragmented Illuminations Symposium will seek to make sense of these detached leaves, cut-out initials and other ornamented snippets. Day 1 will examine the practice of collecting pieces and leaves cut from illuminated manuscripts, with a particular focus on the 19th century. Day 2 will investigate the original context of some of these cuttings, the books they came from and the artists involved.
