Canterbury and St. Albans: Treasures from Church and Cloister
Date: Daily through February 2, 2014,
Location: Exhibitions Pavilion, Getty Center
This exhibition brings together masterpieces of medieval English art: panels of stained glass from Canterbury Cathedral and pages from the St. Albans Psalter, a splendidly illuminated book of psalms. Uniting monumental glass painting with the art of book illumination, this presentation reveals how specific texts, prayers, and environments shaped the medieval viewer's understanding of these pictures during the era of artistic renewal following the Norman Conquest of England.
