"The Jeanne Miles Blackburn Collection of Illuminated Manuscripts"
1999-12-19 until 2000-02-27
Cleveland Museum of Art
Cleveland, OH, USA United States of America

Jeanne Blackburn, a retired faculty member of Vassar College, has invested the past 13 years assembling a collection of Western manuscript leaves with meticulous attention to style, artist, and subject. She has chosen the Cleveland Museum of Art as the eventual recipient of her collection, over time as a phased gift. This exhibition honors Jeanne Blackburns generosity and presents the collection in toto to the museums audience for the first time. The Blackburn Collection consists of about 70 single leaves ranging in date from the 13th through the 16th centuries, and includes artistic hands and styles not represented in the CMA manuscript collection. Included are works by William de Brailles, the Master of the Queen Mary Psalter, the Gold Scrolls Group, Guilebert de Mets, the Limbourg Circle, and Benedetto Bordone.
