Webinar: The Burke Collection of Italian Manuscript Paintings – in Context

October 19, 2021

This international webinar celebrates the publication of the book “The Burke Collection of Italian Manuscript Paintings” (London, Paul Holberton, 2020) with a scholarly gathering presenting papers on subjects inspired by the publication.

Forty-three high quality manuscript paintings, including two manuscripts, many by some of the most renowned artists of their day, appear in the lavishly illustrated catalogue of the Burke Collection published in December 2020. An international team of seventeen scholars contributed to present a coherent and continuous history of Italian manuscript painting from the twelfth to the seventeenth centuries. Bringing together different scholars also on international renown, this Webinar explores further three topics brought into focus in the splendid publication.
