A spotlight gallery talk with Suzanne Reynolds, Assistant Keeper in the Department of Manuscripts and Printed Books.

Prized for its durability and its lustre, gold was crucial to the illumination of luxury manuscripts in the Middle Ages and Renaissance. This short talk looks at the different ways illuminators used gold, focussing on a small group of richly decorated Italian manuscripts on display in the Upper Marlay gallery.

You booking also includes a ticket for general admission to the museum.
