KADOC Artes 8The art of illumination, usually associated with the Middle Ages, experienced a spectacular revival in nineteenth-century Western Europe. This completely different context gave the illuminations another import. The output of the lay and religious workshops reveals a great artistic, stylistic, technical, and thematic diversity. The works illuminated go far beyond the world of exceptional and precious manuscripts and include many occasional documents and devotional images.Richly illustrated with unpublished masterworks, The Revival of Medieval Illumination is an overview of the form by fifteen authors who do not limit their approach to the traditional questions of art history. Rather, they explore the historical, sociocultural, ideological and religious components of the revival, which changed according to time and country, in order to understand the evolution and success of the art of illumination in the long nineteenth century.These manuals proposed models in contemporary Art Nouveau styles as much as those derived from medieval manuscripts. ... The very successful model books of Ernest Guillot of the early 1890s were aimed at this market.71 It seems symbolic that Le ... the high point was the 12th century with works like the Winchester Bible (a€œThe exhibition of illuminated manuscripts at the Burlington Fine Arts Cluba€).
