The Oxford Bible Pictures from the Walters Art Museum

By William Noel

The Oxford Bible Pictures, divided between the Walters Art Museum and the Mus?e Marmottan, Paris, consist of thirty-four illuminated miniatures depicting biblical events from the fall of the Rebel Angels to the Last Judgment. This is one of a handful of works attributed to William de Brailles, an illuminator who worked in Oxford in the thirteenth century. Dazzling in their pictorial invention and sparkling in their execution, these small miniatures are superb examples of early English Gothic Art.
