Summary The Rothschild Prayer Book is an acknowledged masterpiece of Renaissance manuscript illumination. Acquired by the Kerry Stokes Collection in 2014, it includes miniatures of unsurpassed beauty and refined execution by the most renowned and sought-after illuminators of the era. Here the Rothschild Prayer Book is presented within the wider visual context of Medieval and Renaissance art. This is a fascinating look at the relationship of the Prayer Book to the icons, portraits, stained-glass sequences, devotional panel paintings and sculptures of the time.
