Presenting illustrated narratives and decorated pages, this exhibition will investigate different functions of images as well as the interplay between text and image in Medieval and Renaissance books and prints. The selection of objects will include leaves from illuminated manuscripts, early printed books and folios, and broadsheets. Due to the limitations of such light-sensitive works, they will be rotated once, with a display of new selections starting on March 6, 2018.
Closed on Mondays and University holidays
"I still remember the feeling of awe and disbelief when I was alone and walked in the room with those casts." --Ruth Tofle, chair of architecture, winner of the 2013 distinguished faculty award from the MU Alumni Association
