The first catalog of the Frick's important collection of fifteenth-, sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century Limoges enamels, this jewel-like book features major examples of works by some of the leading masters of the art, including the Pénicaud brothers, Léonard Limousin, and the Master of the Large Foreheads. Forty-three highlights from the collection are accompanied by a brief commentary and stunning new photography. There is an illustrated essay by director of the Frick, Ian Wardropper, on the artistic significance, stylistic qualities, and craftsmanship of the collection, and a glossary of terms by the Frick's associate conservator Julia Day.
