Curator Talk: Imperial Splendor: The Art of the Book in the Holy Roman Empire, ca. 800–1500: A Virtual Gallery Talk

Join Joshua O'Driscoll, Assistant Curator of Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts, for a virtual tour of the exhibition Imperial Splendor: The Art of the Book in the Holy Roman Empire, ca. 800–1500, which offers a sweeping overview of manuscript production in the Holy Roman Empire. As the first major presentation of this subject in the English-speaking world, Imperial Splendor introduces visitors to fundamental aspects of this history, including how artists developed a visual rhetoric of power, the role of the aristocratic elite in the production and patronage of manuscripts, and the impact of Albrecht Dürer and humanism on the arts of the book.
