The Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, MD will host "The Book of Kings: Art, War and the Morgan Library's Medieval Picture Bible" through December 29, 2002. The reviews are in and for scribes, the Walters Art Museum's exhibit on the Morgan Library's Medieval Picture Bible is not to be missed. The 13th century French illuminated book was recently dismantled for rebinding (and to make a facsimile) and has been loaned to the museum. The individual pages have been displayed in glass cases with some pages reproduced and enlarged as wall hangings. The exhibit also includes other books, reliquaries and armor, and an exhibit catalog is available. For more information visit the museum's website or call 410-547-9000.
