Medieval illuminated manuscripts, (1898). Creator: Unknown

Medieval illuminated manuscripts, (1898). 'Figs 1-4: From the 14th century. Figs 5-13: With the single leaves and flowers from the 15th century...In the illumination of manuscripts the livelier forms of the ornament superseded slowly the round, surface-filling forms of the Romanesque style. The flowers were partly idealised, also some direct from nature, and Figs 8 and 13 give us an idea how both kinds of treatment were often combined, especially in the later Gothic time. Characteristically of this time is a deep shading, as well as the use of half tones, and the laying on of lights. Remarkable is the variety and splendour of the colours which represent the abundance and brightness of the flowers in the miniatures of the venerable manuscripts of that age'. Plate 43 from "The Historic Styles of Ornament" translated from the German of H. Dolmetsch. [B.T. Batford, London, 1898]
