CURATOR IN THE SPOTLIGHT: ILLUMINATING THE ARMENIAN MIDDLE AGES

Brand Library & Art Center

1601 West Mountain Street, Glendale, 91201

7:00pm

PRESENTATION Organized by the Armenian American Museum and the Ararat-Eskijian Museum. In this lecture, Elizabeth Morrison will invite viewers to discover the fascinating world of medieval Armenian manuscript illumination. These precious relics of the past were entirely made by hand, from the animal-skin parchment to the carefully-formed script to the magnificent illustrations. The complex geometric shapes, twisting animals, and luminous colors leap off the page to delight the eye and engage the senses. In addition to giving an overview of the illumination tradition in Armenia, Dr. Morrison will concentrate on the career of the most celebrated Armenian artist of the Middle Ages, Toros Roslin. His work represents the high point of Armenian illumination, and his innovations were integral to the conception of the painted page for centuries to come. Armenian illumination is admired across the world for its delicacy, vibrancy, and sheer beauty. Join us for this whirlwind tour if its enchantments.
