The Getty Museum of Art website has created this resource to compliment their exhibition ‘Illuminating the Renaissance’ which ran from 17 June to 7 September, 2003 at the Getty Center, and from 29 November, 2003 to 22 February, 2004 at the Royal Academy of Arts, London. The exhibition focused on some of the finest illuminated books produced in Flanders (parts of present day Belgium and France) between 1470 and 1560, which was a period when illuminators were experimenting with light, texture and space. The overview section of this website provides a short audio introduction to the exhibition by the curator Thomas Kren. A sample of more than 130 pictures in the show are displayed as thumbnail images in the ‘Zoom and Explore’ section. Clicking on the thumbnails provides access to the image in the manuscript page. Controls enable the user to zoom in, and the page menu also provides links to particular details, as well as additional information, and for some images audio files. This selection provides an overview of the owners, the stories and the purpose of these books, as well illustrating the fashion of the times, and the artists who produced these illuminations.
