Join Anne Dunlop for the launch of Antipodean Early Modern: European Art in Australian Collections, c. 1200- 1600, edited by Anne Dunlop.
In 2015, Margaret Manion curated an exhibition An Illumination: the Rothschild Prayer Book & other works from the Kerry Stokes Collection c.1280-1685 at The Potter. An extensive series of lectures accompanied the show. Antipodean Early Modern is a publication of the case studies presented in this series of talks.
A Prayer Book owned by the Rothschilds, an Italian bronze casket by Antico, a lavishly illustrated carnival chronicle from 16th century Germany, an altarpiece by Pieter Brueghel the Younger - much of the artwork in this book, held by Australian collections, is essentially unknown beyond the continent. The authors of these essays showcase these extraordinary objects to their full potential, revealing a wide range of contemporary art and historical research. This collection of essays will surprise even specialists.
