Abstract This program beautifully captures the transition from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance through the Late Gothic art of England and its Perpendicular architecture. Spanning the reigns of Henry IV to Henry VIII-the era of the Hundred Years' War, the Wars of the Roses, and the early Tudors-artists and artisans in England produced exquisite jewelry, glorious devotional sculptures and images, dazzling illuminated manuscripts, and monumental structures. Leading historians reinterpret the period, with revealing discussions of patronage, England's artistic relations with the Continent, and the fundamental importance of religion to society of that time.
