A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

This authoritative, accessible survey is the first since 1927 devoted entirely to ivories of the Middle Ages. Color photographs display the V&A’s significant collection, which is especially strong in Carolingian, Anglo-Saxon, and English Romanesque examples. Following an essay on the V&A’s collecting and study of these masterpieces, the book features major works from every era of the period: the Symmachi Panel from late antiquity; the front cover of the Lorsch Gospels from the Carolingian era; the Ottonian Basilewsky Situla; the Veroli Casket from 10th-century Byzantium; the St Nicholas Crozier; the enigmatic whalebone carving of the Adoration of the Magi from the Romanesque 12th century; and numerous others. Each entry provides a full physical and scholarly discussion, synthesizing the exist­ing literature and incorporating new research.
