From 1400 to 1550 European manuscript painting enjoyed a glorious final flowering - particularly in Flanders (part of modern-day Belgium and Northern France).
Here, a selection of high-quality images from some of the finest
Flemish manuscripts in the British Library accompanies a timeline
of contemporary European events. Some of these images have never
been reproduced before. Turn
the pages of Simon Bening's Golf Book now and magnify the details.
These pages were written to accompany the exhibition of the same
name held at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, from 17 June
to 7 September 2003, and at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, from
29 November 2003 to 22 February 2004.
