Object of Devotion: Medieval English Alabaster Sculpture from the Victoria and Albert Museum

Object of Devotion: Medieval English Alabaster Sculpture from the Victoria and Albert Museum

$49.95

Object of Devotion is the catalogue for the exhibition held at the Museum of Biblical Art from March 7 to June 8, 2014. During the later Middle Ages, England was home to a thriving art industry that produced colorful and delicate alabaster sculptures in large quantities and distributed them throughout Europe. This exhibition of an expressive artistic medium comes from the world’s greatest collection of medieval alabaster sculptures at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and offers a fascinating window into the role of art in private devotion at the time, as well as the role of the Bible as an inspiration for medieval sculptors. Object of Devotion is comprised of approximately 60 alabaster sculptures from the fourteenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth centuries.
