Modern Medieval Illuminations

4/15/2012 Posted In , , Edit This 0 Comments »

Artist Claudia Tulifero's atelier in the historic center of Florence offers what few places do nowadays—gorgeous, meticulously crafted illuminations made with the same techniques and materials used by Medieval illuminators some 700 years ago. My heart aches for that exquisite reproduction from the Hours of Duc de Berry, above! The illuminated initials, below, would make unforgettable presents for the Medievalists and art lovers in our lives. (
