A study of manuscript illumination in Amiens in the late Middle Ages, this is the second in a series of monographs on all aspects of medieval culture. It examines the subject in its historical and socio-economic context, discussing evidence of artistic interchange between France and Flanders. During this period, Amiens was an important commercial, religious and cultural centre, poised geographically and politically between France and Flanders, the two most avant-garde regions in Northern Europe for panel painting and manuscript illumination. It also produced Simon Marmion, the most celebrated manuscript illuminator working in the Burgundian territories in the second half of the century. Using many manuscripts which have never before been reproduced, the book is extensively illustrated, and provides an accessible text supported by a catalogue and detailed tables.
