Illuminating the End of Time: The Getty Apocalypse Manuscripts.
Morgan, Nigel J.
Illuminating the End of Time: The Getty Apocalypse Manuscripts.
The visionary nature of the Apocalypse -- the biblical book of Revelation -- along with its detailed descriptions of the end of the world have long made it ideal for illustration. Illuminated texts of the Apocalypse were particularly popular in thirteenth-century England, and the copy in the collections of the J. Paul Getty Museum, with its lively narrative miniatures, stands as a testament to the artistic heights achieved during that period. In this richly illustrated book, all eighty-two of the manuscript's images are reproduced in color for the first time. They are accompanied by a full commentary. A general introduction to the history of thirteenth-century English illustrated Apocalypse manuscripts is followed by a succinct study of the artistic context of the Getty's manuscript, as well as a consideration of its style and date. The rest of the commentary is devoted to a stylistic and iconographic analysis of the manuscript's images; there is also a complete translation of the text.
