Sacred Time - Medieval Art of Devotion

Dr. Timothy Bolton, Sotheby's Deputy Director, Specialist in Western Manuscripts 

A medieval book of hours was extremely costly and could only be afforded by the elite.  With the aid of detailed miniature paintings in exquisite pigments and burished gold leaf, the wealth were able to order their daily lives according to the days and months of the liturgical year.  Explore the richness of this exquisite art while learning fascinating details about its production.
