Of Earth and Heaven: Art from the Middle Ages


This publication brings together 27 objects that were made in Europe during the Middle Ages, between the 11th and the early 16th centuries. They represent some of the finest examples of sculpture, metalwork, painting, drawing, and stained glass still in private hands, and together offer a startling insight into the period’s rich artistic achievements.
