Les Enluminures Presents "Collecting Medieval Masters Now" in NYC Gallery
Les Enluminures is pleased to announce its participation in the 2017 Madison Avenue Gallery Walk on April 29. The event, which takes place on the Saturday preceding the TEFAF, Art New York, and Frieze New York fairs, will open our New York gallery’s spring exhibition Collecting Medieval Masters Now. The works presented here - manuscripts, miniatures, drawings, and rings - offer a meaningful counterpoint to more recent artistic productions and celebrate the legacy of thoughtful collecting from generations past and present.
Highlights of the exhibition include a majestic two volume illustrated manuscript made in the court of King Charles V (reigned 1364-1380), a masterpiece of French Gothic manuscript illumination known as the “Soisson Missal”, a miniature attributed to a follower of Giovanni di Paolo from the collection of Lord Clark of Saltwood, and a Roman ring with a message of friendship hidden in its intricate open-work.
Keegan Goepfert, Vice-President and Director of Les Enluminures (New York & Chicago), will deliver two accompanying talks entitled “Medieval Art for the Modern Collector” and “Collecting Rings: Then and Now” during the Madison Avenue Gallery Walk. The talks are free, but registration at www.artnews.com/MadAveGalleryWalk is required.
