Christie's is proud to present the third iteration of Script and Illumination, our online sale of exquisite manuscript leaves and cuttings. Led by the Karl and Elizabeth Katz Collection, the sale features an appealing range of Medieval and Renaissance European manuscripts, alongside equally diverse and attractive works from India and Iran. Highlights include fine examples of the work of renowned illuminators, among them Niccolò di Giacomo da Bologna, Pacino di Buonaguida and the Master of the Brussels Initials, as well as leaves from the ‘Ghistelles Hours’ and the Chester Beatty Bible.
Highlights from the Karl and Elizabeth Katz Collection will be on view in our New York galleries 28 November - 6 December.
