Субботние монстры: Битвы Александра с...


Набрел в Британской библиотеке на великолепный манускрипт Historia de proelis in a French translation (Le Livre et le vraye hystoire du bon roy Alixandre) 1420 года, написанный во Франции.
Это один из красивейших манускриптов, которые я видел. Реализм битв, пропущенный сквозь призму фантазии художника заставил меня по новому взглянуть на художественную миниатюру.

Итак, наслаждайтесь
