How did artists tell stories in the Middle Ages? Many of them chose to create elaborate visual images, replete with tales of adventure, intrigue, and religiosity, while others chose to do so via the creation of illuminated manuscripts. This fine online exhibit from the Getty Museum tells the story of the methods used to create these beautiful and intricate items. Visitors to the site can listen to Getty curators talk about a depiction of the biblical heroine Judith beheading the Assyrian general Holofernes and also view an interactive edition of a personal prayer book. The exhibit also explores themes that include physical action, the use of dialogue, and sequential events. The details in each work are exquisite and it is interesting to see how the artists imagined each of these various moments.
