Drawings in Anglo-Saxon Manuscripts

Dr Sally Dormer

Medieval drawings are frequently viewed as the poor cousins of fully-painted miniatures.  But in England, an appreciation of drawing persisted throughout the Middle Ages.  Based within the late 10th and early 11th centuries, this lecture proves that drawing was more than an expedient alternative to full paint.
