Waste Not: The Art of Medieval Recycling

Medieval artists were skilled at making use of older materials. On view in this exhibition are more than 20 objects from the Walters’ collection in gold, ivory, stone, glass, and parchment that show evidence of reuse, such as melting down Roman mosaic glass to include in Romanesque enamels. Stunning and important in their own right, these works reveal secrets recently discovered through exciting new research by our curators and conservators.
