Illuminated Pages from Winchester Bible to be Displayed at Met MuseumIlluminated Pages from Winchester Bible to be Displayed at Met Museum
November 21, 2014

Masterfully illuminated pages from two volumes of the magnificent, lavishly ornamented Winchester Bible-a pivotal landmark of medieval art from around 1200-will be shown at The Metropolitan Museum of Art for three months, beginning December 9, in the exhibition The Winchester Bible: A Masterpiece of Medieval Art. Probably commissioned around 1155-60 by the wealthy and powerful Henry of Blois (1129-1171), who was the Bishop of Winchester (and grandson of William the Conqueror and King Stephen's brother), the manuscript is the Cathedral's single greatest surviving treasure. Renovations at Winchester Cathedral provide the opportunity for these pages, which feature the Old Testament, to travel to New York. This presentation marks the first time the work will be shown in the United States. At the Metropolitan Museum, the pages of one bound volume will be turned once each month; three unbound bi-folios with lavish initials from the other volume-which is currently undergoing conservation-will be on view simultaneously for the duration of the exhibition.
