Limited Edition

In the mid-13th century a remarkable creative flowering took place in English art, as influential preachers predicted the end of the world, and catastrophic events appeared to confirm their dire warnings, there was a surge in demand for illuminated manuscripts of Revelation, the culminating book of the New Testament known as the Apocalypse of John the Divine. The text is short, but filled with visionary imagery to which artists responded in spectacular fashion. Among the surviving examples, one of the very finest is the Getty Apocalypse, here presented in facsimile for the first time.
