Overview

This volume, the second catalog of the Wyvern Collection, celebrates an outstanding group of medieval ivory carvings and small sculpture, the finest assemblage of its kind in private hands. The book has pieces from every period of the Middle Ages, including rare pieces from the Early Christian era, spectacular panels from the workshops of tenth-century Constantinople, objects produced by the celebrated carvers active in South Italy in the eleventh and twelfth centuries, and several important pieces from the Romanesque period. At the heart of the collection is an outstanding group of Gothic ivories whose highlights include one of the most important secular medieval ivories discovered in recent years. The collection also features a number of small amber, hard stone, jet, wood, and mother-of-pearl carvings. In addition to their virtuoso craftsmanship, many of these pieces have illustrious histories as part of famous aristocratic or ecclesiastical collections. This is a precious opportunity to study these miniature masterpieces.
