Specialist Notes

Facsimile of the miniature masterpiece, the Bible was made between 1455 and 1461 for Borso d'Este, Duke of Ferrara. The mastery of illuminators such as Taddeo Crivelli and Franco dei Russi sanctions the definitive passage towards a completely Renaissance language, moving away from the elegant late Gothic charms to affirm a vision that makes rational understanding of the world the key to interpreting what exists.
